  • The location is beautiful and the top of the temple there is a beautiful view of the city (if the pollution leave see). The Lake is a little polluted, except a little beauty of the place. But worth the trip if you have the time.

  • Definitely recommended for hiking. You can walk around the park to the point, there dd road to cross via underground tunnel and so along many cafe's and restaurants. This you should do it on Saturday then it is good.

  • The fact that we had peace to enjoy the place, take pictures and walk with the feeling that I had to fight for space was amazing. Beautiful place, great spot for pictures, nice snacks being sold aroun...  more »

  • 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!
