This historic area was very interesting to see. Busy, but not as busy as some other sights in Beijing. Worth a couple of hours to visit.

Did you know that this place was constructed only with wood?? No nails were used, just interlocking pieces of wood. This is impressive, especially considering the shape of the building. The detail and colors are extraordinary. It was not overcrowded, as one would expect, and locals came to visit to exercise in the park. It is a beautiful exhibit that... More

If you have been to the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace you probably would not visit this as it is not as spectacular as these places. The gardens are nice to walk through with locals participating in lots of outdoor activities.

This is probably the second best thing to do in Beijing apart from the great wall. The views are great and the park surrounding is pretty nice.

Good to see about the heritage of a country. Great views of Beijing city with 360 views. Lots of people spitting on the ground so watch where you walk.

Yes you must see this temple. Beautiful round temple with blue glazed tiles. The whole temple photo is the best from the front with the sign but depends where the sun is in relation to the building. If you have time there are other areas to walk through. If it's hot sit quietly in the extensive parkland area. Early morning... More
