Lovely park. The tulips were in bloom and were gorgeous. The hike up the mountain was easy and so worth it at the top with the amazing view of the Forbidden City.

myself and my partner came to the park to watch the sunset over the forbidden city. We did underestimate how many steps it would take to walk to the top of the park and look out, however when we made it up the view spoke...More

Right opposite to the north entrance of the Forbidden Palace. Do stop either before or after the Forbidden Palace visit. The highlight is to walk up to the highest point of the park to the Pavilion. There are paved steps going up and it is...More

You'll be rewarded with incredible views over the Forbidden City in Beijing, the walk is really relaxing and easy with a good and big walkway/steps but not many steps. When we entered the gates there were locals playing with skipping ropes and writing with water...More

Hilly park opposite the North Gate of the over-crowded over-rated largely empty Forbidden City. The Park overlooks the expanse of the Imperial Palace, over the imperial lakes and the White Pagoda. Modest entry charge. The hill is artificial, constructed from the earth dug to create...More

This park was around the corner from our hotel and we went there at sunset. The view from the top pagoda was extremely stunning! There is an entry fee for the park but it is only 2 RMB ($0.25). Very worth it for a nice...More

My tour guide recommended taking a few hours to see this park, which is directly across from Beihai Park and also overlooks the Forbidden City. I’m glad I went! The Park was filled with many beautiful Spring blooms and the viewing pavilion at top has...More

Nice park, great views (if it’s a clear day) including over the forbidden city. Busy but still plenty of room. Quite a lot of steps up to the highest point.

Beijing, is an old city with old scenery and buildings. We should ask, as a capital, where it is beautiful. And I will say, the most beautiful scenery in Beijing, is not the high steel-made buildings but the old part of it. And Jingshan, the...More
