A place where emperors sought respite and cooled down, the Summer Palace is a former imperial garden dating back to the Qing Dynasty. UNESCO listed the 18th century park as a World Heritage site in 1998 as a "masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design". The Summer Palace is a dreamy ensemble of pagodas, bridges and pavilions, surrounded by a dense cluster of trees, facing Kunming Lake. The attraction has defined and set a standard what a Chinese-inspired garden should aspire for.
