... At the end of very busy days,
our hotel was a most welcome refuge from the heat, smog and noise.

It's extremely beautiful and has some tremendously arched bridges and a boat built exclusively from marble. It did occur to me as I strolled the gardens of the palace that Qing noble men and women would be turning in their grave at the sight of tourists mobbing their palace in ...
... afternoon. Very impressive with the portrait of Mao, and how huge the entire complex actually is. If you want to see everything very carefully/slow paced you can spend there a whole day walking around and see new objects (of course with an imperial past) in every room. Very nice to see!
