Chengde (承德) – Summer Mountain Resort (避暑山庄) Posted by sasha on Jul 21, 2012 in Culture
The highlight of Chengde is without a doubt the Summer Mountain Resort. This massive complex features four main areas: the palace, the lake, the plains, and the mountains. Built during the Qing Dynasty, it served as a summer retreat for the Emperor and his family, who would escape the brutal heat of Beijing to hunt, relax, and hold meetings with visitors. This UNESCO World Heritage Site makes for a great trip out of the capital for common folks as well!
