26/46.- Beijing, Summer Palace, Garden of Harmonious Interests


East of Longevity Hill is the Garden of Harmonious Interests, a garden within a garden. This part of the Summer palace was constructed after Emperor Qian Long visited the gardens in the city of Wuxi. This garden also used to be the fishing place of Empress Dowager Cixi.

This is actually one of my favorite places in the Summer Palace. It is difficult to find a place that matches natural beauty with architecture so well, don't you think?

After visiting the Summer Palace, I will take you back to the city center.
