  • Artificial mountains in the North of the Palace Museum, forbidden city views. The Sun it is too hard, view from here is spectacular. There are a lot of people practice calligraphy brush with water. Everyone is a good hand.

  • I was lucky enough to go during 19th party congress. There was no smog, no pollution but a blue sky. So I was determined to walk all those rugged steps on a hot day to see the view. Oh, boy, it was SO...  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.
  • Lovely view. Entrance fee only 2 yuan. Therefore, highly recommended to visit Jingshan Park.
  • Located just behind, rather, north of the forbidden city. It is a small hill with a couple of pagodas. I think this hill must be the only one that offers a panoramic view of the forbidden city. The only obstacle is the air pollution of Beijing. You need to pay only 2 CNY to enter this park, which is suer worth.
  • This is the place to get some great selfies and pictures for the good old social media. Lots of historical buildings and sites to see
