Surrounded by mountains on three sides, ChengDe in HeBei province, about 3 hours north east of Beijing, was a summer retreat for Ming emperor KangXi and also assocaited with emperors YongZheng and QianLong.

Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, it features numerous scenic spots and is a great long weekend break. It is centered on the largest imperial park in China, with a surrounding wall of over 10km, which is a great hike. Within lie lakes and pagodas; beyond are eight temples in various architectural styles.
