China's top experts and scholars in the field of Qing Dynasty shared their opinions on how to dig out Mulan Paddock's cultural values and boost tourism while preserving the balance in nature during a cultural forum held in Chengde, North China's Hebei province, on June 28.

Jin Hongkui, president of the Forbidden City Society, said, “Mulan Paddock has endowed us with time-honored and colorful historical and cultural heritage.”

Mulan Paddock is regarded as Beijing's backyard garden. It used to be a royal hunting place and a summer retreat in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The tranquil surroundings and attractive landscape, as well as strolling flocks of birds, endow it as a popular tourist destination, and also a paradise for photographers. In summer heat, after a drive of just three hours from Beijing, you can be reaching out for light jackets as summer temperatures generally range from 15 C to 28 C.

The forum was hosted by Weichang Manchu and Mongolian autonomous county Party of committee and county government and the Forbidden City Society, co-hosted by the Promotion Department of Weichang county Party and Mulan Qiuxian Culture Research Institute.
