Disappointing, so much history. But the boat look old and falling apart. Getting a photo can be a challenge as there will be a 1000 chinese people trying to take photo as well.

A delightful piece of whimsy. Built to replace an actual boat there is no way this is every going to floaty, as it's made of marble. The upper section is faux marble - wood painted to look like

This boat was made for the empress. It’s marble!!! Goes nowhere and sits in the water. You cannot go on it. BUT it is still worth the walk thru the summer palace grounds to see.
