  • Perhaps it was due to the holiday in China, the Park was extremely full of locals. When one top vorgedrengt to the temple, there is a good view of the forbidden city.

  • 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.
