Great view overlooking the forbidden city, only 2 RMB. Be sure to see the"hangingvtree" where the emperor's life came to an end. Not sure I've seen that before

Another park that's nearby Beihai! Like Beihai, here on the top of Jingshan Gongyuan you can see all of FORBIDDEN CITY. Best time to visit: Apr-May, Sep-Oct. Visited in Sep 2011. Paintings can be found near the entrance of the park. Very cheap: 3 RMB with ISIC)))))!!~

The park is quite pretty and there is a look out at the top. While this was a bit of a climb up the view of the Forbidden city was breath taking. It was incredible to see this from a birdseye view to take in the size which is overwhelming. This real completes your tour of the Forbidden city and... More

This hill is perfectly located to give you a beautiful view on top of the forbidden city. Easy to get to, close to a nice hutong and major attractions of Beijing.

See the square and forbidden city first because you cannot enter from the north of the city where the park is located. Do not miss the views of Beijing!

Center of Beijing, easy to climb, just at the north gate of The Forbidden City,the only high ground to see whole beijing clearly. Just sit there and feel it. If you go there at April, you can see many many kinds of peony. If you go there at a.m. of weekend, you'll find crowds of senior people singing.

In the middle the historic center, behind forbidden city is located the most amazing park of Beijing. On top of a small hill recovered by a dense forest and walkways, you will be able to have a totally diefferent view of the city. The temple on the top offers you a 360 deg view going from tian an men to... More
