Chengde attractions are dominated by the Summer Resort. Qing emperors took a fancy to Chengde's pleasant summer conditions and built a large garden, the Summer Resort, where they spent their summers . The garden, with lakes, tree-covered mini-gardens, corridors, bridges, and streams, is truly a feast for the eyes. Temples in the resort wow travelers with their artistic designs and elegant decorations. In addition, a forest park and a grassland area are worth exploring.
Chengde is near Beijing, and a visit to Chengde can be easily combined with tours of Beijing. See China Highlights' Chengde tours and marvel at the spectacular royal garden.
