Located at the foot of the Lanpu Dashilin Mountain, covering an area of 1.4 square kilometers, the New Yuanming Palace is a reproduction of the imperial Yuanming Palace in Beijing, one of the favorite gardens of the late emperors of the Qing dynasty. It was burnt down and completely destroyed by British and French troops in 1860. The New Yuanming Palace was built as a reminder of the glory and the bitter history of ancient China and has been set up as a patriotism education site.The park is opent  to public in 1996. Walking around the theme park can take you about 2 hours and English-speaking guide can be hired at the gate.

The park is enlivened by performers dressed up as soldiers and court ladies. In the evening, there is always a great show at a big outdoor theatre behind the Lama Temple which can hold as many as 5,000 people. The show is made up of several episodes including an Accession to the Throne, Concubine Picking and Burning down of the Palace. There is also a nice restaurant in the park where you can find some “imperial Qing food”.

The New Yuanming Palace in Zhuhai recovered numerous scenic spots in their old construction style combining modern features, including the complex of royal palaces, Fuhai Lake, Royal Food Street and shops in different types. Carriages, small trains, electric cars and electric boats are provided. A series of performances, such as “Emperor Ascending the Throne”, “Emperor's Wedding Ceremony in Qing Dynasty”, begin at 10:30 every morning at various scenic spots in the Palace.
