Rained all night so woke up to a much cooler day. After a light breakfast we walked the short 15 minute walk to the Metro, trying to time our journey for after the peak hour rush. Around 35 minute journey to the Summer Palace ($1 each).

Even though it was a Friday, there wre still short queues to buy tickets and gain entry ($6 each). It is school holidays so lots of families out and about.






We were very careful not to do any "Romping" in the park. Never know who might be watching....


Finshed off the day at the famous Sijiminfu Peking Duck restaurant which was amazing. It supposed to be top three in Beijing. Dinner for two $35. Service and food was five-star.
