Summer Palace is a very beautiful place. You can easily spend the whole day here. We brought our 2 year old girl with her stroller and thats the biggedt mistake weve done.
This place has a lot of stairs as it is situated in a hill. Upon realizing that it is uphill we left the stroller somewhere in the middle and we co ti ue our journey. only after a while we realized that its so big its tiring to go back again to the place where we left our stroller. In the end we didnt manage to finish touring everything because we need to go back for the stroller.
If you would ask me if you bave a choicr to not come here with toddler then dont go. I usually dont say tgis as i bring my daughter everywhere but trust me it will be tough. my daughter is 12 kg and asked us to carry her a lot of times.
