For unsurpassed views of the Forbidden City, make you way up to the top and enjoy!! There is a lovely atmosphere in this park and upon exiting you can enjoy the nearby hutongs.

This isn't really high on the list of places to visit, but it would have been a shame to miss it. It is right across the road from the North Gate of the Forbidden City, so really accessible. 10 RMB entrance (about 15 cent). It has a temple high (but not too difficult to get there, about 5 mins up... More

Great to see the Forbidden city from above. Not crowded and a big hike up the stairs. Worth the $3! A great place to take pictures and relax after being in the Forbidden City.

Everything's already been said about this lovely park - it is a bit of a climb, but worth it to see the FC view from the top. Gardens are gorgeous on the way up - take your time and enjoy it's relaxed atmosphere.

We climbed almost 20 min just to see the top and it was a raining experience. But once we got there, the view of the forbidden city was spectacular! Worth the long climb due to this fantastic panoramic view at the top.

Went here after the forbidden city and the view from the top is amazing. It is a really nice experience looking over forbidden city after walking through it, and it really is worth the extra 10 RMB it costs to get in.

Do you love the beautiful Peony blossom in full bloom? If yes, Jingshan park is the place to visit in April. In addition to that, the panoramic view of the Forbidden Palace from the top of the Jingshan hill is always a great sight. Pay it a visit right opposite the rear exit of the Forbidden Palace!
