Prince Gong’s Mansion
Located near Shichahai Lake, Prince Gong’s Mansion was constructed about 230 years ago. The complex, which remains in extraordinary condition, was opened to the public in 1996. Trees provide shade for visitors on bright, sunny days, when conditions are ideal for photographers. Visit the complex after a rickshaw ride along Shichahai, then head to scenic Houhai after touring the mansion, where you can enjoy food and drinks with lake front seating.
