Hi, at present there is no subway running to Yiheyuan or Yuanmingyuan. Good news is that Beijing Subway Line 4 including these two stops will put into use since Spe.28. THAT IS TO SAY, you can take Line 2 from Chongwenmen to Xuanwumen and transfer to Line 4 from Xuanwumen to Yuanmingyuan or Beigongmen (North Gate of the Summer Palace).

Mr.Norm. From Yuanmingyuan, how can I get to the Olympic stadium & Water Cube? By subway or taxi? Thank you.

Three options for you to choose:
1> Taxi, CNY30
2> Subway, CNY2, 2 transfers. first take subway line 4 from Yuanmingyuan to Haidianhuangzhuang, then transfer to line 10 from Haidianhuangzhuang to Beitucheng, at last take line 8 from Beitucheng to Olympic Sports Center
3> Bus, CNY 1.5, Bus No.696 from the south gate of Yuanmingyuan to Asia Game Village (passing 9 stops)

Mr.Norm. Is the Asia Game Village same place as the Olympic Sports Center?
Which mode of transport is faster - subway or taxi? Thank you.

There are near each other. But subway don't extend to Asia Games Village. Just take taxi. It will cost around CNY10.
