(4.1/5 based on 650+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, museums, nature
Dominated by an extraordinary, UNESCO-protected red and white palace complex sprawling up the mountainside, Chengde remains a summer resort fit for royalty. Built at the start of the 18th century as an imperial retreat, the lush mountain city has retained its air of grandeur, with a visit to the palace complex still topping practically every Chengde itinerary. Temples and gardens also serve as interesting places to visit in Chengde, while the mountainous nature surrounding the city attracts many visitors looking for scenic day trips.

Where to stay in Chengde

Many of Chengde's plentiful accommodations offer a traditional touch, housed in old-fashioned buildings that remain in keeping with the city's historical aesthetic. Most of these options cluster near the river, between Sengguanfeng Scenic Area and the district of Shuangqiao. Aside from traditional accommodations, you can also find many business-focused hotels, which offer comfort and appropriate amenities, but lack character. Look to the north, near the city's lakes, for the most sought-after options.
