The Summer Palace is what it sounds like. It was the summer home to the Emperor. Here are two facts you should know about it.
- The water you see is a man made lake.
- The Emperor ordered the workers have their hands chopped off so that they could never recreate it.
Clarence got a cool Chinese version of himself on a plate for basically $2. Also, there were several international groups checking the palace out from places like France, Japan and Spain. There was a boat made of pure marble on the water. It’s just a different way lot living, isn’t it?
One can dream.
