Costs a mere 10 yuan to enter, walk up the hill to the Wushan Pavillion and be rewarded with one of the best views of Beijing I've seen. Be sure to go on a clear day to see the Emperor's Palace (故宫) from behind! It's a big park like others in the city, also meticulously maintained and you can marvel... More

Jingshan Park is located on a hill next to the exit of the forbidden city. The highlight of the park is a pavilion that thrones on an artificial hill overlooking the forbidden city. You can see the gigantic structures of this historical place or just walk around and have an excellent view all over the city. There are no skyscrapers... More

We visited the park following the Forbidden City. It is just across the road of forbidden city exit. The park is beautiful. We went up to the top of the park, the view is perfect! You can see the panoramic view of forbidden city and is windy up there. The only thing to note is that it is totally not... More

As a tourist, I found the parks in Beijing to be somewhat undersold as attractions. That is certainly true of Jingshan Park. We visited this after touring Forbidden City and loved it. It was quite smoggy when we visited and the visibilty was not good, and I wish we had returned on a clearer day to take advantage of the... More

I live and work in Beijing less than a 20 minute walk from here. Any day that the sky is Blue, I come up here for the SPECTACULAR view. Beijing is flat, and on a good day you can see 360 degrees for miles all the way out to the mountains. The southern view back towards The Forbidden City cannot... More

Wonderful place to rest a little in a very hot and humid day in Beijing! Never got this city in summer time!

We visited the park right after the Forbidden City and we simply wanted to get away from the crowds and tge noise. The park is pretty big allowing for a nice and uninterrupted stroll. The big reward of course is at the top of the park where you get to see the whole city, take amazing photos of the Forbidden... More

Right behind the Forbidden city and looming in the distance is Jingshan Park with its 3 temples on the hill. Especially in summer, the hill will take its toll but its definitely worth it for the view.

We visited the park on a Sunday and it was teeming with all sorts of people performing. A noisy affair with amplifiers competing with each other; it was a lot of fun. Ballroom dancing, opera, popular Chinese songs, traditional dance, choirs .....there's plenty to keep you entertained. I ended up joining in with 1940's dancing!!! Climb the stairs to the... More

From the top of the hill, you will have great views over the rooftops of the Forbidden City as well as of Beijing. It's well worth the climb up. At the bottom of the park there are many beautiful paths to walk with trees and potted lotuses and flowers. It's a great place to spend a couple hours in the... More
