It was a great visit, first thing in the morning! We experienced adults practicing Tai-chi, walked around the well groomed gardens and the view from the top are highly recommended! A great place that should not be missed when visiting Beijing!

On my last full day of sightseeing in Beijing, my tour guide took me to Jingshan Park, located just north of the Forbidden City. The park -- reportedly created from the earth that workers removed to make the moat around the Forbidden City -- is a welcome and tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of central Beijing. During our... More

The ticket to Jingshan Park is not expensive, so it's worth going there after visiting the Forbidden City. For me, the best about the park is the beautiful view on the Forbidden City.

This lovely park is a must if you are in a Beijing. It has lovely gardens and walks and the best part is that if you walk up to the temple buildings you can the look over the Forbidden City but there is a twist that I won't reveal !!!!

Jingshan Park is located opposite of the back entrance of the forbidden city. If you are lucky and there is no smog in Beijing you have a fantastic view over the central districts of Beijing.

Now don't get me wrong the Forbidden City is amazing but there are just too many people! It surprised me how many of the people exiting from the Forbidden City skipped going into Jingshan park. It costs only 20Y or 15Y for students and contains a lot of surprises including plenty of shade to cool down in after the heat... More

I fully agree with previous comments. This park is a must if visiting Beijing, as you will have the chance, not only to see the Forbidden City from a certain angle above, but also to see the sunset and other beautiful structures to the north. Be prepared for some 300 meters of stairs to get to the top (but is... More

This is a beautiful park right behind the exit of the Forbidden Palace. After traipsing around a lot of Beijing attractions that seem to be all paving stones and no shade, this is a beautiful oasis. Lovely gardens, cool breezes and lots of seats and shade. You can see many Chinese playing musical instruments, exercising and just enjoying the park.... More

The short climb up the hill is worth it, even in the burning heat of the summer. From the top, the spectacular golden roofs of the Forbidden City can be seen clearly. Explore the rest of the grounds for another great example of Imperial Chinese architecture and gardens.
