Here’s what Annie and Jerry did on their last day in China.
After that we went to The Ming tombs. The Ming Dynasty tombs of the 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty were located on the southern slope of Tianshou Mountain.
The Chang Ling is one of the tombs which is the burial mausoleum of Cheng Zu (1360-1424), ZHu Di, The third emperor after Ming Dynasty, and empress Xushi.
The Yongle Emperor is buried in the Chang L ling tomb, the central and largest mausoleum of the Ming Dynasty Tombs.
The next tour was “The Summer Palace”. The Summer Palace was first constructed in 1750. This large-scale royal garden was completed by the skill full craftsmen al around the country for 15 continuous years costing seventh of the national annual income.
The Chinese call it Yi he Yuan (Garden of Restful Peace).
Jerry said “Are we going to ride the boats?” Unfortunately that was not included in the tour fee. We just walked around the lake and pavilion.
The Summer Palace is one of the lovelier spots in Beijing.”
