The extravagantly landscaped gardens and lakes of the imperial summer palace make an equally spectacular winter playground. You will see virtuoso skaters take to the ice in Beijing, spinning casually, hands behind backs. But many don't feel any need for skates - in fact, they enjoy their ice-sports sitting down: watch out for those ice-chairs and ice-bicycles!
Until spring 2011.
Animal-themed push-along metal ice chairs hilarious!
