Best view in the city
Apr 2021 • Family
We ended up in this park when the Fobidden City was sold out. Even though it was not our original destination, it surpassed expectations! The tea room on the East side is a great cultural gem.

Beautiful view
Oct 2020
The park is just behind the Forbidden City.
It is a very typical Chinese style park, which means it is well cared for and laid out very well. The temples are typical in the Chinese style, as you will see in hundreds of places, but still nice. The view of the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing is why you come to the park and make the climb, it is the highest ground in BJ. It is not a huge park and will take you only a short period of time to walk around, but you can easily spend much longer wandering and exploring. Admission was 2RMB, needed to show our passports to get tickets. Likely nice place to view sunrise and sunsets. Certainly worth the visit.

Enjoying the floral, & hilltop views of the Forbidden City
Sep 2020
There is much to see at Jingshan Park. On this visit we walked the zigzagging paths, enjoyed the flowers in the gardens, walked to the hilltop for the awesome views of the Forbidden City, and visited a temple.

Horrible rules and staff for this park
Sep 2020 • Couples
Don't think you can enter this park as any other. As many things in Beijing it is complicated!
Apparently this park is worth the view over the forbidden city on a non-polluted day.
We were not able to confirm this since staff did not let us in via the different entrances.
Indeed, as I read you need to pay a small fee of 2RMB/Pax BUT you need to make a booking calling a number the day before coming to this park!! Impossible to buy a ticket on the spot for the same day!!! How ridiculous is that? Although the park looked more than empty!
The staff follow this rule is will not give you any explanation or even dare to talk with you (even in Chinese), they gonna show you an A4 paper where it s written in EN/CN "call this number to book for next day". They are super unfriendly and rude!
How are you anyway supposed to know you need to book to enter a park with a ticket price of 2rmb!?? My guess:only local people or tourists with organized tours...
We felt very frustrated for a while. Some other Chinese tourists as well I can confirm!
I share with you the number hoping you will have a nicer experience...

Good view of the Forbidden City
Jul 2019
Opposite the exit of the Forbidden CIty, the climb to the top gives a great panorama of the city.
The park is a restful place to cope with the buzz of the city and the heat .
There are some beautiful temples to see in the park itself
Entrance fee a few RMB - worth the fee.

Scenic Park

I walked around the park with a friend and you can travel to the top which oversees the forbidden temple across the street. Very nice, we had to make reservations during this time.

Large Park with Great Views of Forbidden City
Jan 2020
This park was built on the debris excavated when the moat surrounding the Forbidden City was dug many years ago. Since that time it has become overgrown with mature trees and there are numerous paths you can stroll on. At the very top of the highest hill there is a small building from which you can get a great view of the Forbidden City to the South and Olympic Park to the North. It seems to be a favorite for photographers. Definitely a beautiful place to relax and get a 360 degree view of Beijing.

Good view of Forbidden Palace
Apr 2019
After we exited from the Forbidden Palace, we crossed the road and directly in front of the exit is Jingshan Park. Climbed to the top and we were rewarded with a complete view of the Forbidden Palace in front of us. However, you may need to jostle for space to the take the 'perfect' photo as there were many tourists. Worth the climb however tired we may be after visiting the Forbidden Palace.

Overlooked experience!
Nov 2019 • Solo
If you go to the palace museum, then you enter one way and exit the other. I know you are tired because of the walking, but when are you going to be in China again. Walk across the street and go here and climb to the top. You get a view of the whole forbidden city, which is spectacular! Do not overlook this!
