An enchanting experience

I went into Jingshan Park expecting it to be just another Chinese park - weeping willows, well tended lawns, rock sculptures, and the occasional vendor hawking their wares. Maybe... read more

I went into Jingshan Park expecting it to be just another Chinese park - weeping willows, well tended lawns, rock sculptures, and the occasional vendor hawking their wares. Maybe five minutes into my walk through the park on the way to its central pagoda, I heard the first small crowd of older people singing together. Then another. Then another. My... More

After visiting the forbidden city, coming here is just calming. Being surrounded by so much green is peaceful, be aware of the huge bees flying nearby and go up to enjoy an eagle view of the forbidden city.

You can have a overview of the forbidden city from top of the hill. There is a really big Buddha as well on the temple on top of the hill which is worthwhile to visit ;) The entry is only 2 RMB!

We were lucky and had a very clear day - so views over the Forbidden City were excellent. So if you have a choice, avoid smoggy days. We were lucky that the walk from our hotel (161 Beijing) was only about 20 mins so we went on foot. The walk was pleasant enough - past all sorts of little shops.... More

Iconic views over the Forbidden City, which isn't on all the tourist maps. Easy to get a taxi to somewhere around the rear of F C then hike up through the park to the top. Amazing photo opportunities!

China has such great parks, and this is among the best, pack a lunch and enjoy! Lots to see, including people watching and some great bridges.

It's a bit of a hike to the temple, but really worth it for the views! Minimal entry fee and locals hangout. Quiet and peaceful spot after the crowds at the Forbidden City.

This park has enough stairs and trees, and paths to give visitors a feeling of some quietude after the crowds found at the Forbidden City. They are now limiting the number of daily visitors allowed into the FC to 80,000 visitors, but if that cap tells you anything, then look to Jingshan park for great views with fewer people.
