Dear & I Spending A Night at Qianyang Hotel in Chengde, Northeast Hebei – China

Filed Under (Chengde, China, Travelling, World Souvenirs) by Janet on 01-06-2008

We travelled for more than 3 hours from Beijing to Chengde, passing through very dark with dim lights Expressways, as well as Mountain & countryside roads with no streets lights. And our Chinese driver Sifu was driving crazily fast but very steadily, & we all felt really safe in Sifu’s hands & slept throughout in the Van like dead meats!!  

And we arrived safely, but very exhausted, at the Qianyang Hotel in Chengde, at 12 midnight!

The City of Chengde, with a population of 3.45 million, is located in Northeast Hebei Province, 225 km from Beijing. It’s located on the transitional zone from the inner Mongolia Plateau to the China North Plain, with forested Mountains & Valleys & numerous fantastic Stone Formations on the surrounding Mountains. In 1985, the City of Chengde was listed as one of China’s Top Ten Scenic Spots!

The 4-star Qianyang Hotel, a Garden-style Tourist Hotel, is located in the famous Tourist & Cultural City of Chengde, facing the Imperial Summer Mountain Resort (Chengde Summer Villa).

And here we were – Dear & I spending a night at Qianyang Hotel here in Chengde, Northeast Hebei – China!!

See the below lady in black with white pants – she was our Chengde Tour Guide, who met us in the Hotel upon our so late arrival! And on the left is our superbly strong & steady Sifu!

Tired looking Dear in the Hotel lobby :

Big & Grand Lobby with huge dropping chandeliers :

A gigantic Painting of Jingshanling Great Wall of China of Chengde hung by the lobby wall.

We soon checked into our hotel room :

Beautiful clean big cosy room :

Time to unpack a little for the night’s stay :

And I decided to unpack & open all my newly purchased Beijing Olympics Souvenirs & all other boxed-up items, so that I could throw away all their packagings & boxes so that Dear & my lugguages wouldn’t be so heavy!!

And Dear asked the Hotel for some old newspapers for me to wrap all the fragile stuffs, such as the below Chinese Dragon Tea Set from Dr Tea in Beijing.

Our 2 babies Smartie (on the left) & Sparkie (on the right) beside my boxed-up Olympics Fuwa Huanhuan who was seated on the Horse (which we named “Mama” meaning “HorseHorse” in Chinese).  

Smartie & Sparkie beside my boxed-up 5 smaller Olympics Fuwas – Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying & Nini.

Huanhuan & Mama joined in for another photo shot!

Look at tired looking poor Didi Sparkie, who had travelled all the way with the rest with Dear & I from Beijing to Tianjin, then back to  Beijing from Tianjin, & then to Chengde from Beijing!!

All the packagings especially that of the Olympics Fuwas were really beautiful & of good quality, & it was really sad to have to throw them away! It would be great if I could bring them all home with us as well :( (

See below all the packagings that I had to leave behind in our Chengde Hotel room :

Finally time to REST!!! After so much travelling on the roads from Beijing to Tianjin, from Tianjin back to Beijing, & then from Beijing to Chengde, & not forgetting us being stranded on the Expressway, Dear & I were extremely dead exhausted!! In fact, Dear had already long fell asleep while I was still unpacking & packing & throwing the above stuffs!!

What an eventful crazy day & night that I would never forget for a long long time!!

    Most of the bleaching creams contain Hydroquinone, which may cause leukemia, kidney damage or thyroid disorders.
    Hydrogen Peroxide – This is a little stronger than lemon juice.

    Currently it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
