China: Summer Palace

Day 3 in Beijing might have been my favorite day. We slept in a bit and then checked out of our hotel, but left our bags there so we didn't have to carry them all day before our night train to Xian.

We headed out for the day to the Summer Palace. This was my second favorite thing that we did in Beijing. I wish we had had more time to explore there. If we had had another day I would have gone back and explored more. We decided on the 30 CYN pass, and to not pay double that to go inside the buildings. The grounds were gorgeous enough for us. We ended up walking up the east side of the grounds and along the north side. We followed the signs for the North Gate and exited there, as it was close to another subway stop. Take Line 4 to Beigongmen Station and it is very close to the North Palace Gate.
