This might be where the Qing emperors of China spent their summer and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it has lost all of that atmosphere. It is just a park. As parks go, it is quite a nice park and very large. The footpaths...More

Take your time to stroll through the villa, which is steeped in the history and marvel at the lives of the emperors and their households in the years gone by. The villa itself is well-preserved, and the tall trees provided much shade from the sun....More

This Mountain Resort needs to be visited. It is a totally different style from Beijing Summer Palace. The best is to go early morning to have a more quiet walk through the huge park.

Tip : buy the combined ticket for 280yuans (Mountain resort, Potala and Punning Temple) if you're going to visit the main sights. You can add HammerRock the price would be 320yuans if I remember. The summer palace in itself has nothing special if you already...More

I have read that visiting the mountain resort can be disappointing after having seen the palaces in Beijing - well, we were actually in Chengde first, still, I found this place rather unspectacular. It is certainly a piece of Chinese history, but the buildings are...More

Really liked this place. It's absolutely vast and astonishing. Having seen the big European palaces like Versailles, it brings it home how amazing Chinese history is and how little we learn about it in the West. Get there early. It's packed and busy and lots...More

145 rmb to enter was a bit on the pricy side so we had huge expectations as entering. First we saw the building and that area was very small, a bit feeling of a super mini forbidden city and then there'd was the exit and...More

Went there on a cold sunny day. Not that many people in what is quite a large park. The calm atmosphere makes a very nice place to go for an afternoon walk.

Yes, I would say much of it is wheelchair friendly - I have been. You can walk miles on the flat. Not sure you can get on boats or train but they were not running the day we went. We walked 9 miles round the place. We... More
