The gardens are lit up at dusk, inviting visitors of all ages to stroll along the paths. While the multicoloured lanterns have a new story to tell this year, nature is decked out in surprising glowing hues.

The son of Heaven

Surrounded by bronze cranes and turtles, the illuminated lanterns recount the life of the Son of Heaven, the Chinese Emperor. Step into Beijing’s Forbidden City for a look at the key moments in the sovereign’s life, from his enthronement to his wedding.
