Incredible view of the forbidden city

When my guide told me we had to climb stairs at 3 PM in August, I was super unexcited. That said, I'm really glad I stuck it out because once you get all the way to the top (yes... read more

Well worth a visit after exiting the Forbidden City via the north side - it's just over the road. Walk to the top of the hill to the pagoda for a view of the Forbidden City from on high.

Consider Jingshan park an absolute must see on your trip to Beijing. As a long-time resident, I have been to nearly all the must-see sights and this was one of the last. If you are lucky enough to have a clear day, the views from the temple on the hill will be a great reward. Be aware, there are quite... More

This is a great park. It was in full bloom today. The entrance fee is only 2 yuan! The temple in the centre has 360 degree views of the city and is great to take photos from. I just wish I went at sunrise or sunset because I think it would be spectacular then.

Beautiful park just across the palace museum. Can be covered athe same day after visiting palace museum. It has the highest peak in Bejing from where you can get a nice view of Beijing city and palace museum

2 yuan entrance fee to a really well looked after park. Climbing up the top to see the forbidden city is the highlight (especially as the forbidden city was closed for a parade during my 2 week visit to Beijing). At the top you could sit and watch the world go by, ignoring the many other tourists! When sat on... More

In my opinion, the only highlight of this place is the hill top pagoda where you can view the entire Forbidden City. However the trip to the top is not friendly for the elderly.

Gorgeous park with brilliant views at the top. Like everything in Beijing there are loads of tourists swarming around the top but it is possible to find a quiet spot if you come down a bit. It was really peaceful then and even more enjoyable.

It is easy to find since the entrance is in front of the exit of the Forbidden City. I was a bit surprised you need to pay to enter a park but it is rather cheap. Choice is to climb steep stairs or zigzag in the gardens to reach the top from which you can make nice photos.

Visting Beijing - then this is a must-do. Access for only 2 Yuan and you can easily climb to the top and get a perfect 360 degree view over Beijing. I went here as the central square unfortunately was closed by authorities for a military parade preparation, and this was a good alternative.
