Imperial Summer Villa of Chengde is ranked to be one of China’s top royal gardens. 1994, it was included in the world cultural heritage list. Located in Chengde City, Hebei Province of China, it wass a popular summer resort for emperors and dignitaries in Qing Dynasty and also the biggest Imperial Garden in the world.
The sceneries are so incredibly beautiful. Snow mountains, Colored Pool, Swan Lake, Mirror Lake, Pearl Shoals Waterfall and Colorful Lakes. Up and down, tiredness and comfort, disappointment and ecstasy – Jiuzhaigou National Park, a tour place where amazing happens, everything happens.
A lot of my friends tell me that they hate Macau or never want to go. ‘It’s too small a place, I don’t want to gamble, I don’t want to get drunk, it’s overpriced,’ The reasons are numerous because Macau has been portrayed through the glitz and glamour of the largest casinos in Asia, yet there is so much more to Macau than what people see about its casinos and restaurants – and letting this simple factor keep you away is a huge mistake.
The people of Three Gorges show me their absolute austere friendship. Between mountains and waters, it looks like a landscape painting. Traditional stilted architectures, mysterious ancient sailing boats and covering ships silently stand, while young girls are washing clothes beside the river…
These places are miracles you never saw. Brahmaputra Great Canyon is the highest, deepest and longest canyon in the world. Thus it is considered as the ultimate canyon of the world and the last secret area of human race. To adventure in such an 'extreme' place, you would face many tough difficulties such as high altitude, hard and dangerous geography and etc.
The Multicolored Beach is located in the north of Burqin County, Xinjiang, which is also the only way must be passed to the Kanas and Habahe County. With a river traverses the whole region, two different worlds are presented with surprisingly sceneries – it is the best way I can explain. Violent river striking and wind erosion made the north bank a cliff-style Yadan landform. Rock stratums of the surrounding land possess strong or weak ability of resistance to weather, thus the outline is irregular, and different mineral substances reflect various colors, by which it’s well-known as 'Multicolored Beach’.
I do not know what exactly the Aer Mountain looks like except the advertisement 'Aer Mountain Purified Water'. But all the friends around recommend it as a great travel place. Before I leave, I need to do some preparation and start with a note. The lake catches all your attention. It appears differently in different time of the day or season. You need to come to the lake in person, otherwise my description will never be rightly pointed on its real beauty.

Located in Chengde City, Hebei Province of China, it is a popular summer resort for emperors and dignitaries in Qing Dynasty and also the biggest Imperial Garden in the world. It has made perfect combination of the natural sceneries. This attraction was built from 1703 to 1790 during Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
