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...More

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...More
