Check it out if your in Beihai Park (I think). I have been told by locals that it is special because it has dragons on both sides of the screen. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this though.

This display will truly inspire you, especially if you're a fan of dragons. I was unsuccessful at snapping a worthwhile picture as it's both exceptionally long and one of those things you need to see in person.

The carvings are intricate and the colour is fantastic. The Nine Dragon Wall is not to be missed and although you could spend only a few minuted here you could aso spend many hours marveling at the wall's beauty.

This wall is very intricate and nicely carved. You should not miss this when visiting the Forbidden city.

Carved on a wall - nine dragons (I was told 10 is a perfect number and no one is perfect so there are 9 dragons). Very colorful. Very popular so hard to get a photo of the entire wall without people.

there are many like this around China, but this is the best one. it is worth to wait till most people are gone to take a nice clear picture of it. honestly I don't quite understand how this is listed as an attraction, seen it's inside the Palace Museum (Forbidden city)

I read that you pay extra to see these dragons but no one has ever asked me for money. Buy an annual park pass anyway. You can get one from Some of the parks.
