Decided to go to this park after being unable to obtain tickets to the forbidden city. Glad we did, this park is really nice and quite clean. There are lots of beautiful pagodas which offer stunning city views if you can climb to the top. Much cheaper to enter than some other parks.

With only a few RMB, you can access this awesome park, with a great view on the Forbidden city and Beihai park. It is a quiet and almost silent place, with much less people than the other highlights. I actually prefer to take my guests who visit me in Beijing to the Jingshan park rather than to the forbidden city... More

Just occasionally Beijing can get to be too much, so many people every one rushing going all over the place. Sometimes you want to get off the bus that is life and have somewhere to sit, rest and recharge your batteries. Such a place is Jingshan Park. For those feeling energetic there is a hill to climb to get exceptional... More

Worth taking a walk through this garden for some history, as well as a respite form the traffic & noise. Walking to the top will provide great views (360 degree) across Beijing & into the Forbidden City.

If you are at Beihai park, you can exit the East gate and go directly into the park. 2 RMB gate fee. I visited in the winter, the park maintains a green look. Trees are lush and grass covers the grounds. This so different from the Old Summer Palace (Yuanmingyuan) which is barren of any green and the grounds are... More

Just exactly at the exit of forbidden city, cross the road, walk up the staircase and you got a full view of the palace from the hilltop. Nothing fantastic but why not have another view of the palace before you leave, since it's just next door.

This park is located just North of the Forbidden City, and there is a big hill, so there are great views over the city (if the pollution is not too bad). The view of the rooftops of the forbidden city is spectacular. The temples on the hill are very beautiful and a great place to watch the sun set over... More

This park will give you great views of the shear scale and size of the Forbidden City complex and if the weather is clear great views of the entire sprawling city of Beijing . Another great thing about the park is that you can view the locals performing dances , singing all for free for the passing crowds . Some... More

Climbed up the small hill in this park to catch a winter sunset after a day at the palace - quite busy at this time but beyond worth it! Absolutely beautiful and still much more peaceful than the palace in terms of other tourists. Wind back down over the back for a quieter walk. Warmed up with green tea for... More

Cost ¥2 to enter and a short walk up the man-made hill (the dirt moved to build The Forbidden City) to see the view. A couple of temples on the way up, plus add you walk through the park to get up the hill, you can see locals in the park doing dancing, tai chi, playing cards, chess and hacky... More
