  • Right across the street form the north gate of the Forbidden City, this place can't be missed. It is quite cheap, I think 2 yuan. But you will absolutely get the best views of the palace complex from ...  more »
  • Try to visit for sunset and be sure to go all the way up to the top Pavilion and face south right onto Forbidden City! It will be the best scope of view as to how humongous is actually Forbidden City!...  more »
  • This has quickly become our choice of where to go when we take friends to "see the forbidden city"! The view is incredible, and unless folks are genuinely interested in the historical aspects of the c...  more »

  • One of my favorite places to visit when in Beijing. On a clear day there are great panoramic views of the city and of the forbidden city. If the visibility isn't great this is still a great place to people watch especially on the weekend mornings. The stairs up are not bad at all.
  • Stop here after going through the Forbidden City for a spectacular and unique view of the City and the Beijing skyline. Fair warning, the best views come with a fair number of stairs, but it's well worth the effort. The other parts of the park are beautiful and worth walking around to enjoy, and there is a small tea shop in the back that has tea sampling to enjoy.
  • Very pleasant park. The entrance costs ¥2 and can be payed by WeChat or cash. The view from the highest point of the park is fantastic, you get a beautiful view of almost all of Beijing. The rest of the park was alright. FYI, the steps are sometimes quite slippery and deteriorated, also, the ramps seem inadequate for wheelchairs.
  • Best place to get a good view over Bejing, especially of the ancient part, the forbidden city. Go there directly in the morning before visiting the forbidden city - chances for clear air are higher in the morning. If you plan to go afterwards, make sure to leave the city from the north exit
  • Great place to relax and mellow out after the busttle of the city and the palace musem.
