Went up for the Forbidden City view. Worth the climb! Although the entrance to the park is just opposite to the Forbidden City exit, you need to walk a little bit to cross the street. There’s a review saying there’s an underpass but I think...More

When we arrived there was a gold fish display going on - we walked the length of the barrels but is was pretty poor. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk to the peak and also sat and watched the people which was so much more interesting than...More

I could see the temple on the peak of Jingshan Park from my hotel room window so asked my guide to take me there. It's small but beautifully landscaped and the views from the peak are amazing. It looks down on the back section of...More

We decided to visit the park in the afternoon. It quite a climb to get to the top but you would be rewarded with a good view of the Forbidden city. The park also had display of different type of gold fish.

Came here as part of a tour with Travel Chine Guide. It was a pleasant enough place but honestly would not have visited if not as part of the tour

As we exit the Forbidden City, we come to this park. It’s a fairly small part compare to the other Beijing Parks. The highlight of this place is to climb to the highest pavilion and see the panaromic view of the Forbidden City. What I...More

The park itself is very nice, tranquil, and gives you great views if you climb to the highest pavilion. However, once my wife and I got to that pavilion, we were approached by a man who I would guess is in his 50s and has...More

The last thing we wanted to do was walk uphill after a very hot morning spent at the Forbidden City. However, if you are only going to be in China once, it is well worth it to take the 15-20 minute uphill walk to see...More

Easily the best view in Beijing. Overlooks the roof terraces of the Forbidden City so you have amazing photo opportunities. It’s a bit of hike up to the temple summit to see these views but well worth it.

Hi Daisy, there are bicycle rental companies, like Bike Beijing and the others, but Beijing does not allow riding in the parks. If you want to ride a comfortable tour around town and learn what's going on: check in on WanLin... More
