APRIL 4 SATURDAY: OLD SUMMER PALACE REVEALED THROUGH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

A UNIQUE RASBJ EXCURSION: Old Summer Palace Revealed through Digital Technology

   On Saturday, April 4, you're invited to this premiere tour of little-known sites in the Old Summer Palace, featuring digital recreations of imperial architecture, on iPads and smartphones, brought exclusively to RASBJ by the Tsinghua Heritage Institute for Digitization (THID). We're the first group to see THID's unique presentation on efforts to bring the Yuanmingyuan ruins and gardens to digital lfie. Please join us on this custom-designed excursion to parts of western Yuanmingyuan, the Old Summer Palace, seldom visited by the public. The buildings were destroyed long ago, but THID's experts and virtual reconstructions reveal how emperors, eunuchs and concubines lived daily life and observed festival rituals such as Qingming in a bygone era. Space is limited.  RSVP to membership@rasbj.org to see if places are still available.

Third Ring Road (tel: 5865 5000, 400m north of Lufthansa Center) for transport to the ZAOYUAN GATE of Yuanmingyuan, where the tour beings at 2:00 PM. The return bus leaves from Yuanmingyuan South Gate at around 5:00 PM.  If you're using public transport, the nearest subway stops are Xiyuan -- for the start -- and Yuanmingyuan at the end.
