For those looking to get away from the heat of
Beijing in the sweltering
summer months, you may be advised to follow the lessons of
history. It was the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD) emperors,
starting with the revered Kangxi, that were to
truly appreciate the cooling charms of the little village of
Rehe or Jehol, that has since
come to be known as Chengde. The Qing court were to live here
between May and late October every year, until finally the
warming comforts of the capital lured them back. Nowadays,
Chengde not only still has these cool summers, it also retains
the memories of this Qing invasion with some of the best
Imperial Garden architecture in China.
