  • After crossing the forbidden city and if you still have the courage to walk a little (less than 5 minutes to rise), you will enjoy an exceptional view of the forbidden city and a part of Beijing. However if the fog of pollution is present (which we did), then the interest is less because there is almost zero visibility on the forbidden city.

  • If you want to see the Forbidden City from above, go up to the top of the park. For photos it us best to go in the morning. 
  • I went there after leaving the forbidden city, it is very beautiful and you can have a nice view from the city. It is a nice place to take a rest, and visit alone or with your family. I don't know if ...  more »

  • 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.
