After coming out of the Forbidden City, I say this park and temple on the hill looming like a challenge - one I accepted. The park is nice, but I was focussed on climbing up to the temple. It's not a hard climb, but Beijing on that day was 34 degrees (Celsius) and I started breathing a bit hard climbing... More

Worth the entrance price (2 RMB a person I think?). All you have to do is climb up a small hill and you get an aerial view of the forbidden city that's hard to beat anywhere else in Beijing.

Once you have reached the top there is a great view of the city and the forbidden city! When you are ready to head back home please wait patiently for a cab!

Go there after spend around 3 hours in Forbidden City. There are two way to go to the top: short route but steeper or long and relax route. We decide to take both: go up with short and go down with long. The view from top to Forbidden City is worth the effort to go up. There's also a small... More

Like in every park - you can relax after a long day of sightseeing in Beijing. Besides that there is an amazing view from there! Also,like in nearly every park in China, you can see lots of people dancing and singing there which is also an amazing experience. I recommend buying green peas ice cream (they sell them in most...

The forbidden city is one hectic overcrowded the place. But after you've exit through the north gate. You are right in front of this small but gorgeous park. Not many people visit it, but it's deffinitly worth it. Because on a good day you can look over the forbidden city and have a great look of central Beijing.

Lovely old park, overlooking the Forbidden City. On a rare clear day in central Beijing, the views and photo ops are wonderful. Otherwise, a pretty , cloudy (aka smoggy) view of the Forbidden City, Palace Museum rooftops. Early morning TaiChi in the park, and older couples ballroom dancing.

For a small fee enter the park opposite the exit of the Forbidden Palace and climb to the top to be rewarded with wonderful views back across the Forbidden Palace and around all of Beijing too! A peaceful spot after the crowds!

Not just that the park is beautiful itself - the views from the top Pagoda are even better. You could see the forbidden city, and in a better day - most of Beijing since it's really flat.

Most parks and temples look almost the same. That one has a distinctive feature: if you have the stamina to climb all the way up, and if there is not much haze (in Summer), you will get a superb view of the whole Forbidden City. Breath-taking
