We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Ruins of Yuanmingyuan


Ruins of Yuanmingyuan

Now in ruins, the Old Summer Palace(Yuanmingyuan)was once hailed as the garden of all gardens. The site originally of featrued elaborate gardens, statues and fountains, which were created by the best artisans from all over the country Yuanmingyuan was built over a period of 150 years starting in 1709.

Ruins of YuanmingyuanThe spacious park consists of three main sections;Yuanmingyuan(Garden of Perfection and Brightness),Wanchunyuan(Garden of 10,000 Springs) and Changchunyuan(Garden of Eternal Spring), centered around the lake, Fuhai(Lake of Happiness). Changchunyuan is the site of the best preserved ruins, that of the Great Fountain in the European Garden.

The original Yuanmingyuan was composed of 145 buildings and 40 scenic sposts. It was also home to some of the most valuable treasures in China. In 1860, the British and French armies stormed the garden, burned down most of the buildings and took all of the treasures. Then, in 1900, the Eight Allied Powers came again and destroyed the rest of the buildings. All that remains today are some of the marble archways and fountains. Despite the fact that the treasures and the buildings are gone, Yuanmingyuan is still a great park to visit. It is a good walk, and the peaceful ruins offer a welcome respite from the crazy buzz of the city. You should definitely make time for a visit here.
