We arrived at Beihai Park at around 3pm, via the Beihai North metro station (exit B). There was no line to get in and the cost was RMB 10 per person, which was very reasonable. Even though it was 3pm in the afternoon, it was...More

More well known by the Chinese than westerners, but beautiful park on the other side of the forbidden city which is absolutely worth a few hours mooching about.

I was here in April when the flowers were just blooming, and it wasn't very beautiful. Also because it was still cool out there were so many people around! Not really peaceful, but a nice place to visit for nature in Beijing.

There is a cafe inside this park but mainly sells snack foods and ice creams, cold drinks. No hot drinks though.
