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

How the emperors lived. The site is very large and beautiful. You can sit on a shuttle to save a little bit of walking. Too bad I went in the fall so the gardens were not in full bloom but just lovely nevertheless.

This place is huge, approx 2.2 sq miles and one will need more than a day to go thru the whole complex. This is a must visit attraction for history buffs. It was interesting to see a frozen lake and to walk on a frozen...More
