It is worth taking a short trop to Jingshan Park to have a bird's eye view of the Forbidden City. It may take you an hour (or less if you are in a rush), and there is no queue for tickets. Flowers are another attraction of the Park during spring time. Entrance fee of RMB 10.

Nice view over top of the Forbidden City and towards Beihai Park. Well worth the hike up. We came out the north gate of the Forbidden City, up Jingshan Park, then continued to walk over to Beihai Park. Lots of walking but a nice day sight seeing in Beijing.

Many locals go there to dance and exercise early In the day. Walk up to the tower and get a great view of the entire Forbidden City. It is a view to behold and remember.

After 6 hours of flat stone and the big walls of The Forbidden City this park is a great way to end the day! The view is stunning. It was built from the excavated diet from the forbidden city. Beijing is mostly flat, this is one of the few hills overlooking the beautiful city. Spend sunset there for great views.... More

A lot of people don't make it this far, and it is worth a visit. 2 yuan entrence and climb your way to the top to see the best view Beijing has to offer!

This is a real nice park to wander through, especially in the evening as it is open quite late. Much of it is set out quite formally with flower beds and shrubs. A fairly short hike up to the temple on the hilltop is rewarded by superb views over the forbidden city to the south, and over the rest of... More

Yes the view is amazing from the hill but another perk(s) of going to Jingshan Park is that once you hiked the hill all the way to the top there is a small stall that sells dirt cheap souvenirs; there were beautiful portable classic chinese fan that was sold for 10yuan (i managed to bargain till 5 yuan and bought...

It is firstly a historical park right across the Forbidden City's north face, and thus views of the palace are amazing. Views of farther areas were obscured by the city's smog when I visited. Good for a break from the traffic and noise.

Nice park. We were taken there by a private guide after visiting FC and at the end of the tour we were invited by her to be educated about teas of China in the tea house in the premises of the park. After a ten minute exhibition and tasting of mediocre tea we were forced to buy expensive unlabelled tins... More

Jingshan Park, in and of itself, is a beautiful and well appointed park in central Beijing. It also has an interesting history to it, but just the tranquility of wandering around is sufficient. There is a nominal entry fee of two yuan, which is a tiny price to pay, but prevents the park becoming overrun by the homeless. Within the... More
