This is a lovely park across from the forbidden city. There are beautiful gardens with paths meandering through them but the highlight is the pavilion on the hill in the center of the park that offers an incredible view over the forbidden city. Well worth a visit, best in the morning for photos as in the afternoon the sun is... More

There are several tourist venues in Beijing - Jingshan Park (also known as Coal Hill Park) and the Wanchun Pavilion are by far the best value for the Yuan - only Y2/pp (30 cents) entrance fee - and, a MUST visit. It's ALWAYS crowded at all Beijing tourist venues, and this one is no exception on a clear day -... More

We went there after the forbidden city. It's right across the street as you exit the forbidden city from the north gate. Entrance is 2 yuan. The views from the top are breathtaking. I actually enjoyed this park far more than the forbidden city itself. Avoid the tourist traps offering you hutong rides and whatnot.

After climbing to the top you are rewarded with the Wanchun Pavilion which contains the stunning Buddha figure Vairocana. Then you turn around and get a view of just how large the Forbidden City is. Excellent finish to a day in the Forbidden City.

the Jishan park is located in the rear of the forbidden city. It has a great view of the forbidden city, a cute temple for praying of wishes and a lot of history related to the palace museum.

Besides being a nice place to stroll and see local culture, climb the hill to see the forbidden city, the park is a great place to enjoy China's national flower, peony. The timing for blooming varies so check the information online. The park will charge a slightly higher entrance fee when peonies are blooming.

This park is a great spot to escape the noisy streets of Beijing. Great for people watching (badminton games, tai chi and dance groups) and a nice climb up to a viewpoint at the top. We visited Beijing in winter so it was a bit hazy but there is a nice view of the Forbidden City from the top. It's... More
