It was very hot in Beijing. We didn’t want to miss out on visiting the Old Summer Palace (Yuan Ming Yuan) so we arrived here at about 9 am. It was already getting hot then.
The lakes were covered by beautiful lotus plants, with red, pink and white blooms.
Some ruins from of the buildings
It was a very photogenic place (pardon my photos, all taken with my iPhone). There were many photographers snapping away with impressive looking equipment…

We spent 2 hours exploring the garden. It was great having seen this lovely place, before we left Beijing. I had a great time in Beijing, and hope that you have enjoyed my photos.
