Visiting Some China's Tourist Spots

I have stayed in China for only 3 years (working) and i didn't have much time to travel and see many natural wonders the country offers. For 2 May holidays i had the time to go out. The first one was a visit to Chengde City, Hebei province where i stayed for 2 nights and 2 days and the next year (2005) i made it to Datung to see the Yungang Caves - just a an overnight trip.

Visiting Chengde after working in a very polluted city (Shijiazhuang) for 2 years was a break of the dirty skies. I even have to placed my head out of the car just to smell the fresh air of the place..the blue sky so impressive and one can enjoy the summer fresh air. One of the beautiful spot to visit there is the Emperial resort and the Biggest buddha temple - which is a very impressive sight from the top of the mountain resort.

The above temple is a replica of Potala temple of Lhasa, Tibet below.
