I remember reading about this palace when I was in middle school and being so curious how it looks like inside. Also known as Summer Palace, it served as a resort to the famous Dowager Cixi. Uncle Wiki says she diverted 3 million taels of silver for the expansion of this place.

It was inscribed as a UNESCO WHS in 1998.

  1. Hurrah on finding a card and a topic for Q. Always a hard letter.
    Only 10 letters to go but I find I am losing my spirit, my mojo.
