    Summer Palace (Yiheyuan)
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    The Summer Palace is located 9 miles (15 kilometers) from downtown Beijing, and can be reached via subway by Beigongmen metro station. First built in 1750, it is the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China and was used by the emperors to rest and entertain. The site, which covers a total of 2.9 square kilometers and incorporates a huge lake, was considerably enlarged during the reign of Empress Dowager Cixi who effectively controlled China for 47 years between 1861 and 1908. Besides the lake and the main hill, this impressive complex includes several pavilions, towers, bridges, corridors and even a marble boat. This is the main entrance ticket to the Summer Palace. For 4 extra attractions: Tower of Buddhist Incense; Dehe garden; Suzhou Street and Wenchang Tower you should pay extra fee at spot. In order to access the park, please scan the QR code you will receive by e-mail 5 days before your travel date at the entrance turnstiles. Please use the QR code on that e-mail, as the Viator's voucher is not accepted.

After having paid for my entrance weeks in advance, I was required to buy a brand new ticket upon entry because Trip Advisor failed to send me a voucher. Don’t use Trip Advisor. It’s a waste of money.

Hi Michelle, We are a distributing agent for the Summer Palace and unfortunately, they only send us the QR Code for entry 5 days prior to your entry date. After we receive the QR Code, it is sent as a voucher to you via email as stated in the details of the product prior and in the email after booking. Many other guests book our product and have no issues. Thank you, Vic from Variarts

There are more parts to the palace wheee you need extra tickets, but with this ticket, you’re able to see a lot of the park and honestly, it is large enough for one to not have to buy the additional tickets. Gorgeous palace. Super peaceful place.

The Summer Palace easy to get to on the subway, station is close to the north gate. Entrance is via the QR code, which is sent as a 2nd email, the first is the ticket. Worked well on the day, but is entrance only, so any inside sites you have to buy a ticket. Overall very nice
