  • For only 2 RMB, you can visit the top of Jingshan Park and get a wonderful bird's eye view of the Palace Museum. It's pretty windy up there as well.
  • The spot where there last emperor of the ming dynasty hanged himself. Overview of the whole forbidden city. Best to visit on a sunny day or snowing day. You will expect hundreds of photographers shoveling in front of the temple to get a best shot of the royal palace
  • It was wonderful...... If you wanna feel the China's scale then dont worry about visiting there. Just go and see and feel the China.... the palace would be gorgeous!
  • There is so much culture to see in this park. A good vantage point to the backend of the Imperial Palace.
  • By far cheaper and more convenient to see the Forbidden City than actually going inside to look at the relatively empty buildings. I much more enjoyed going to this than the City itself.
