The Summer Palace has a history of of more than two hundred years.It is recognized to represent oriental garden culture. In other words,it is full of story.When you stand before the east palace gate,you you can see a plague under the roof with three Chinese characters YiHeYuan.In Chinese,Yi means cultvating the people in good health;He means calm and harmony.Therefore,this plague means making a person calm and giving him a long life.
When you come across the main hall,you can find a strange animal stands before it.If you have never came to China,I am sure you have not seen it before.It has the head of a dragon,horn of a deer,tail of a lion and hooves of a bull.We call this animal QiLin.Of course it is not a real animal.But it was created by ancient Chinese for the wish of pease and prosterity.
Why there is a lake shaped like peach? a boat made of marble?if you want to know more about them,pay a visit to the palace.

IN THE STEPS OF HOTEL DEALS CHINA
I’m a student loving travel. In the past 1 year, in order to travel to more beautiful cities in China, such as Shanghai, Guangzhou and Macao, I have to take some part time jobs to save money , at the same time, I have taken full advantages of information on the internet, searching for promotions of hotels in these cities. Finally, hard work pays off, after 2 months’ preparation, I’ve accomplished one luxurious trip, but living in luxurious hotels in super low price. See the importance of hotel deals? Especially to Shanghai Hotels and Beijing Hotels, you have to pay more attention. Now I’ll show you some ways to save money when planning to live in another city, all from my rich experience!
Book hotels on line in advance
Still remember when I went to Shanghai for expo, I booked a holiday hotel around Shanghai bund. Shanghai bund is famous around the world. It attracts a lot of tourists from home and abroad. Shanghai bund gives travelers good sense of traditional Chinese culture and the essence of western architectural complexes. You can imagine the price of living in such gold land. However , I have grasped many principles of booking hotels and own much experience. In the end I lived in a four star hotel only in RMB120! That is amazing! I got the high service with low price. The only way is to search the promotions and book in advance.
A lot of hotels will release promotions on the internet. The earlier you see them, the more you save. When hotels are in dull season, they have to release some discounted information to attract customers. That’s an opportunity for travelers to take advantage. Actually, even you don’t book in advance, only on the line, you can enjoy the discounted price of the hotel rooms. So register more hotel websites and book on line when in need.
Sometimes register one hotel website, you will become an VIP of the hotel. Every time you live in hotel chains, they will keep the records and help you save some points. More points, more gifts.
Besides, if you live in the same hotel regularly, they will give you a discounted price of the room. So except paying attention to the promotions, you should know about the hotel’s principle of keeping points and its gifts.
For example, a friend of me went to Dalian, he lived in the chain hotel and he’s already a member of the hotel club. As the VIP points had been over 10000, so not only he got an ticket to the local theme park and enjoy an free night of the hotel. See the magic of the VIP points?
It’s an important way to save money. New opening hotels are on their way to broad the market, so they have to do something to attract the customers. In this condition, the discount of them is always heavy and the gifts they send more valuable. So if you choose to live in a city, why not live in a new opening hotel?
Tips: search the chain hotels, if one of them open a new branch, choose it. I’m sure you’ll enjoy an unexpected surprise!

In Beijing, the financial street located next to the center of the city. The interesting part of this place is that you would not only be exposed to the modern part of the street, there is also some culture behind it.

Houhai lake in central Beijing is surrounded by a cluster of bars and restaurants which although open during the day really come alive after dark creating a vibrant socialising district for locals and visitors alike. The area has been described as a mix of the modern west married with old Beijing situated between the lakes of Xihai and Ouanhai. For an insight into the flavours that inspired Chinese cuisine just wander into any of the waterfront establishments serving local dishes. To enjoy Houhai at its best arrive just before dusk and watch the evening sun reflect on the lake as it sinks then marvel at the twinkling lights reflecting on the water.
Houhai has something for everyone regardless of which cuisine you prefer. Each restaurant has its own unique style and service with Australian lamb at home here just as much as Chinese dumplings. For something more exotic try chicken legs or scorpion from one of the small food outlets next to the lake. For Vietnamese dishes in striking surroundings try Nuage or make your way to Buffalo with its inspiring menu and deep sofa’s next to the lake for wholesome comfort foods.
If you prefer to eat off dry land take to the waters on one of Houhai’s decorative boats or grab some street food and hold on tight as a rickshaw negotiates you through the surrounding streets. Disembark and wander along the west side of Houhai lake and stroll into some tastefully decorated boutiques selling iconic Chinese souvenirs alongside handmade arts and crafts. Visit Houhai lake for the perfect evening in Beijing.

Have you ever been to Sichuan? Sichuan is located in a basin. It’s characterized by a warm and humid climate with lots of rainfall. This makes people prone to rheumatic diseases. Hot flavorings like chilies and peppers can help them dispel internal dampness and protect them against illnesses.
So, Sichuan people keep “doctors (医生)” in their courtyards (院子) all year round!
On the floor …
In the air …
These years, Sichuan dishes are becoming more and more popular all around the country. Among them, foreigners may prefer:
水煮鱼（Fish Filets in Hot Chili Oil） “水” is actually “油”.
宫保鸡丁 （Kung Pao Chicken） You can also call it “宫爆鸡丁”.
麻婆豆腐 （Ma Po Tofu） It was firstly invented by an old woman called Ma Po.
When eating Sichuan dishes, you need a lot of tissues to deal with sweat (汗), nasal mucus (鼻涕) or tears (眼泪). And it’s a great challenge for your tongue (舌头)!
In spite of the torture (折磨)，the dishes are always eaten up! It’s a common case that only chilies are left in the plate.
Talking about Sichuan food, we have to mention 火锅 (Hot Pot)!
People eat hot pot in any season — in winter (冬天), hot pot can drive away chills and make them warm (暖和); In summer (夏天), eating hot pot is often described as a sauna (桑拿) for the mouth and stomach.
Beijing has its traditional hot pot too! In a Beijing hot pot restaurant, you’re prepared with slices of raw mutton. The pot itself is made of brass (铜), with a wide outer rim where charcoal (炭) burns to heat the spicy soup. Now, pick up your chopsticks and let’s涮羊肉 together!

With the development of China tourism, more and more people come to China for travel. Apart from the beautiful scenery, what is most impressive to you? Do you know China history? How many China Tours do you know? How do you see China travel service? Now, I will tell you something about China.
China has a recorded history of nearly 4,000 years. During the development of China, there exist several dynasties. Man in China passed from primitive society to slave society in the 21st century B.C., with the founding of China’s first dynasty, that of the Xia. The subsequent dynasties, the Shang (16th-11th century B.C.) and the Western Zhou (11th century-770 B.C.) saw further development of slave society. This era was followed by the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods (770-221 B.C.), marking the transition from the slave society to feudal society.
China has all kinds of travel tours such as natural tours, culture tours and classical tours. If you want to enjoy natural scenery, you can choose Zhangjiajie, Jiuzhaigou and Huashan fist; If you want to experience Chinese culture, you can choose Beijing, Xi’an and Nanjing fist; If you want to see old towns, you can choose Suzhou, Pingyao and Lijiang fist.
The Palace Museum and The Great Wall are the representative of culture tours.
The Palace Museum which was historically and artistically one of the most comprehensive Chinese museums was established on the foundation of the palace that was the ritual center of two dynasties, the Ming and the Qing.
The Great Wall perhaps is China’s most famous and most popular site.And it is also a place of interest which is the status of china people’s wisdom and culture.

Do you like China Travel? Do you know how many China Tours? As we all know, there are all kind of tourist attractions in China. If you want to enjoy natural scenery, you can choose Zhangjiajie, Jiuzhaigou and Huashan fist; If you want to experience Chinese culture, you can choose Beijing, Xi’an and Nanjing fist; If you want to see old towns, you can choose Suzhou, Pingyao and Lijiang fist. But now, I will introduce you a place which seldom foreigners know but it deserves to visit—it is called Baiyangdian.
Baiyangdian is a place of revolutionary base. In the war years, there appeared a boy named Zhanggazi who contribute to the war with the advantage of the terrain. Baiyangdian lie in new county of Hebei province which between Beijing and Tianjin, 140 kilometers from the Beijing and Tianjin, 45 kilometers away from Baoding. It is the largest fresh water lake in North China Plain
There are many tourism spots which are all beautiful. But, I suggest you go to culture exhibition fist. Only in this way, you can know the place very well and enjoy the scenery permeated with the culture very well. In culture exhibition, you can know what had Zhanggazi done and you also know a team called Yanling who done something against the enemy. Once you see the tools they used, you may be more admiration to them for their tools are so simple and crude. They only had small boat, sickle and simple guns.
Baiyangdian water among the most attractive scenery and varied landscapes in different seasons. I think the summary scenery is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. Most of the time in your trip you must stay on the boat, because there is no road and boat is their transport. When you are on the boat seeing reed along the “water road”, that is a wonderful feeling. By boat you can get a place called Lotus Grand View Garden where own 360 kinds lotus with all kinds of colors. The best thing I like to do is wandering in the thicket of lotus by a wooden boat. That is wonderful!
There is another place called Gazi impression where you can see drama performance about Gazi resisting enemy. From the Drama Performance, you can general understand Gazi through the realistic performance.
Another performance is about crocodile. One man put some money into mouth of the crocodile, and then he take the money out with his teeth.
New county has a new high-speed roads lead and 107 provincial highway and national highway connecting. From Beijing, Tianjin, Shijiazhuang freeway was able to more than one hour to the new county. From the county to various tourist attractions we have to go to Baiyangdian terminals, county five kilometers away from the pier. And from the pier you can go to the various scenic spots on board. If you want to get more information you can contact China Travel depot.

Have you ever experienced 12-hour long airplane flights? If so, you would have the same horrible feelings as me. My first long airplane travel was from Shanghai to Toronto which lasted for 15 hours on Air China. At first I didn’t think this would be a problem for me, because I used to be “trapped” in a narrow space on train for 18 hours at least twice a year. In my opinion, the service and environment on China Flights are much better than trains, so I prepared to enjoy a comfortable long journey. However, I suffered a lot from this long travel and took about a whole week to recover from this. After this, I began to be aware of collecting travel tips for the long airplane flights.
Unless you are taking the luxury planes operated by Emirates Airline, these tips below will inspire you more or less, sooner or later.
1.Reserve a right seat. In order to stretch out your legs as much as you can, an aisle or exit row seat should be considered. Some people may think of the window seats for good views or sleep. But most of the time, the window shades are required to be closed on a long-time airplane travel. And for a good sleep, you may choose other tools to gain better effects rather than the window seats. Why do I always not recommend window seats, especially for a long travel? The most important reason is that you need some walks or exercise, but the window seats are inconvenient for you need to pass two passengers to go out and in.
2.Carry on something for entertaining. Although some of the airplanes have the built-in systems for movies and music, the selections can be poor or not your favors. So bring an iPod, iPad, laptop or PSP with you and try to download some of the latest songs, movies or novels before your departure.
3. Try to bring some your own food or snacks on board. Usually meals provided by the airlines are not my preferences and sometimes are even worse. I am not so picky on food, but I always feel sick after several hours on planes. So one of my travel habits is to bring some appetizers and yummy snacks. I also put a couple of fruits or vegetables, such as apples or celery sticks, to help my bowl movements. One thing to remember about the fresh fruits is that you would better eat them up before landing on another country. Otherwise, you may have some problems at the custom offices.
4. Dress appropriately. It makes you feel longer in a long trip, if you are in an uncomfortable dress. Although it is said that the non-binding clothing will make your body swelling, I would recommend the relatively loose pants like ones for yoga or exercises. Also the loose fitting shoes and a pair of socks will be ideal for your feet.
5.Do your best to have some exercises. Try to stretch out your legs and lift them every 2 hours. If the space is limited, then you can bend your knees and put your feet on the seat. When your feet are on the ground, circle your ankle clockwise and reverse. Do not forget some head movements and learn some simple massage for your head and necks.
6.Bring a travel pillow for good sleeps. If I can only pick one thing to be carried on the plane, there is no doubt that I willchoose the travel pillow. This helped me to survive from the 11-hour greyhound and every long time airplane travel. This wonderful pillow supports your neck and prevents the bad effects by this sleeping position.
Hope these tips can add more joyful experiences for your China Tours.
