Ditan Park is a 40 acre square of towering pine and cyprus trees. Ditan is the Temple of Earth and complements the Temple of Heaven in the South. Popular among locals for morning exercises like tai-chi, dancing and sword play, this is a nice place to spend some quiet time under the giant trees. The park is open 24 hours... More

Come here in the morning and find yourself surrounded by people doing Tai Chi, choirs singing old Chinese and communist songs, ballroom dancing, erhu playing and what not. The ballroom dancing lasts until late night and it is hard not to join in!

Part of the Temple of Earth is familiar from other temples: big buildings, spacious parade areas, etc. But much of it is just a great, big park with lovely walking paths, ponds, sculptures, and even play equipment. If you need to decompress from all the people, this shady park is a great place to visit.

This big park surrounds the Temple of Earth, walking distance from Yonghegong station. Lots of families with kids and senior citizens hanging out, doing tai chi, singing in bands. One thing I found nice was people doing Chinese calligraphy with a big brush (almost like a mop) and water on the sidewalks. Good place to see locals relaxing.

It's a 300 meter walk (5 min) from exit A of the Yonghegong Lama Temple metro station on line 5. The park is large so it's a long walk in any direction. The landscape is uninteresting. The park lies flat and most paths are straight with 90 degree turns. Basically, you're walking in a grid pattern. The main tourist site... More

When I first arrived on the first day of Lunar New Year, I was greeted by an unbelievable amount of people. After pushing and shoving my way down the queue I managed to get a ticket. Entering, there were lanterns everywhere. There were some nice pieces of art and some gardens that were nice to look around. The main attractions... More

This was the location of my favourite Temple Fair. Easily get there on the subway and follow the people into the park. Sample regional foods, buy reasonably-priced souvenirs, snap some colourful photos and play some sideshow alley type games. Temple Fairs are like market style celebrations at temples held during the first week of the Chinese New Year/Spring Holiday celebrations.

Due to historic reasons, Ditan is the park that each and every Chinese visits on Chinese New Year. Whether you like it or not, depends on what you're looking for. If you don't like crowded places, you will hate it. But if not, then you will be rewarded with an athmosphere you won't find in many other places. Thousands of... More

We visited the Ditan temple fair over the new year holidays 2016. The temple is located in the centre of the city, close to lama temple. A huge area bustling with people of all ages, from children to old people.
