Is not amazing and is not a top attraction but it's nice to visit and walk around and see the palace. The negative is that there are a lot of people and during summer is too hot

This is a strange mixture of replica buildings and a theme park. The entrance leads to replicas of the Beijing Imperial Palace and visitors are encouraged to dress up as Emperor or Empress to be photographed on the imperial throne. Several of our party did this and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cost is only that of photographs which you can... More

This was such an unusual place to visit. Actually really well done and quiet. There is a lake behind the palace where you can take a boat ride and place to eat and drink. A very pleasant stroll.

A theme park built on the same size of land of Yuanmingyuan that was burned down in 1860 by the Brits and French. Maybe I grew up in Beijing and used to the ruins, this newly built park (2012; free 9am - 6pm) doesn't do any magic for me. However, jogging is pretty good there. I didn't go to any... More

The New Yuanming Palace in Zhuhai is a good reproduction of Yuanming Palace in Beijing. Although it is not big enough as the one in Beijing, it can also catch your eyes for its great design and unique location in Guangdong province. We enjoyed the design of classic Chinese garden and some of local items from other places in China.

If you need some Chinese culture and scenery, however re-made, this is the place to come in Zhuhai. Not a total replica, but just nice to see buildings you'd see north or in a major tourist attraction for free in a local park. A few tourist traps about (and overpriced drinks), but worth it if you want souvenir emperor photos... More
