Traditional Chinese Architecture, Culture and History
A tranquil retreat sits at the East Gate of the Summer Palace. Aman Summer Palace is housed in a series of heritage dwellings dating
back over a century, and provides guests with unparalleled access to four UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Summer Palace,
the Forbidden City, the Great Wall and the Temple of Heaven. The original complex was used by guests of the Summer Palace awaiting
an audience with the Empress Dowager Cixi. Rooms and suites reflect traditional Chinese architecture and celebrate the courtyard style
of the Summer Palace with a dignified ambience throughout. Whilst every modern comfort has been provided, the design embraces
Imperial Chinese layouts, materials and fabrics.
