For a small fee of 2 yuan at the time of writing, this park was surprisingly pleasant. The park is clean and well maintained. It’s also not very crowded and provides a stunning view of the forbidden palace from above.

Climb up to the viewing areas for great view back over the Forbidden City. I had a great time watching the table tennis, then also had a game too! Great fun.

If you want to see Chinese park life (something really worth it, imo) I'd tell you to get up at 6 am and head for the Bei Hai. Jingshan is smaller and it doesn't have as much life as Bei Hai but what is does...More
