Great day out and plenty of walking involved! However you do need your passport to enter some of the temples which I wasn't made aware of!

beautiful building, situated in a beautiful park, full of locals doing some really interesting things; playing cards, singing, playing unique instruments, and those just chilling in the relaxing environment. the temple itself is beautiful, but as with most sights in Beijing, there is always a jostle to get a view inside/better camera shot

Amazing views. Get prepared for lots of walking, but it's well worth the trip. Flooded by people but you'll get used to it.

We enjoyed the walk through the trees up to the temple. Our guide gave us an insightful tour about the unique 3 roof temple made without nails that has been refinished a few times since damage in multiple wars. The dragon and phoenix artwork is stunning. The building at the base provides a warm place to escape the cold winds... More

According to our guide, this was an extension of the emperor’s playground but has since been separated and became a separate tourist attraction as well with great architecture providing an overlook from the top. It is 5 minutes from the Forbidden City. Beautiful architecture all around. A must see!

Must visit historical structure. Must see the beauty of it. My parents and children enjoyed it. We were there with a tour and the guide explained the history well to us.

This was a surprise attraction. I did not expect to see dancing groups, costumed dancing children, Tai Chi, shuttlecock players and high level Tai Chi. What a wonderful experience. The grounds and gardens of the park were pristine and the people were friendly often inviting me to participate in the dancing and other activities. The palace was wonderful, but you... More

Go early. Go early. Go early. We're in Beijing, so crowds are unavoidable, but you can minimize it if you get there by opening on a weekday. Prices are very affordable, make sure you bring water to drink and eat before you get in.
