The New Summer Palace is located at foot of Shilin Mountain, to the northwest of Zhuhai City and was opened to the public in 1997.

It is a replica of the original Summer Palace in Beijing. The park is split into three main areas: the Classical Southern Chinese Gardens, the Western Building and the Imperial Gardens from Ming

and Qing Dynasties. Sights at the Palace include exhibitions of Imperial belongings and Chinese architecture. Performers dressed as soldiers and court ladies walk around the grounds of the palace and take part in a variety of shows, from traditional dances and sea-battle re-enactments. If you would like to know what you would look like in these traditional outfits, then be sure to stop by the photographic studio near the exit where you can experience the costumes for yourself. Hiring motor boats and pedal boats to take you across the large 80000 square meter lake provides a lovely view of the palace's various buildings.

A floating restaurant provides refreshment to visitors and English-speaking guides can be hired for a tour which takes around two hours.

Admission: RMB100 adult, RMB 60 child between 110cm and 140cm Free for children under 110cm
