The West Causeway - Summer Palace, Beijing (China)

The West Causeway was created to perfectly adorn the man-made lake area it embraced. In spring it is a long path of riotous floral profusion with new buds sprouting on the willows and bracts on the peach trees. The causeway is connected by six bridges each unique in style: Jiehu (Lake-Boundary) Bridge; Bridge of Binfeng (Pastoral Poems); Jade-Belt Bridge; Mirror (Jing) Bridge; Lian (White-Silk) Bridge and Willow (Liu) Bridge. They combine to recreate the scenery of South China. Its picturesque setting, at once tranquil and elegant, makes it a popular retreat.
