  • You'll find everything here. Temples, a pagoda, tai chi by the water, king fu on the mountain, shopping, ambling, sitting. I recommend going early in the morning and watching people doing their mornin...  more »
  • I believe this is the most beautiful park in Beijing city. Full of Chinese style decoration and atmosphere. It's really nice to take a walk here, no matter with lover, friends or family.

  • I personally like this park more than the other tourist attractions as they left some of the temples as they are without re-repainting them in horrifying blue. It is not as crowded as summer palace and is smaller. But it's serene and nonetheless a beautiful sight.
  • This park is near the Forbidden city. The views are amazing. The park has many historically important structures, palaces and temples.
  • Beautiful park on the water. Beijing's smog is it's only real detractor.
  • It's directly accessible from exit B of the Beihai North metro station on line 6. Gate fee is 5 RMB. It's winter season, lakes are frozen and there's no activity from the boats. The park is large so it's a long walk around the lake, but the landscape is beautiful. As you approach the White Dagoba, your excitement only grows. A lot of walkers use the park, and there's ice skating, ice biking, and sledding on the frozen lake.
  • It is nice place to spend your day, relax and enjoy!
