We came to Chengde quite by accident. Due to problems with our original tour in Chengdu, our tour operator arranged this tour of our choice for us at the last minute, while we were in Chengdu. The reason we picked Chengde together with Beijing and...More

It may have been our guide but I didn't get much out of the museum section where you first enter the park. The grounds were far more interesting with small temples/houses dotted around the lake. There was one area where some of the locals were...More

If you are in Beijing and have some days left, I recommend Chengde as one of the destinations. But you have to stay at least, 1 night. The Summer Resort is a very beautiful place, with a lot of temples/buildings left from the last dynasty....More

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

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
