Chengde was the summer residence of the early Qing Dynasty emperors. The city still maintains the fine features of this hill-side resort, such as the outer wall and large expanse of parkland that incorporates lakes, pagodas, and palaces. Outside this complex are the impressive Eight Outer Temples. The resort, along with the Outer Temples, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
The city is located approximately 260km northeast of Beijing and currently has a population of around 700,000.
