The park is huge, and there are many different spots to discover and enjoy. Take your time to stroll, admire the buildings, the live dancing, do some people watching… there are many possibilities!

Good for an evening stroll and people-watch. There are bars and restaurants all around the lake, and most are over-priced and had mediocre live music (maybe better later at night).

It was lovely to walk all around Beihai Park and see the beautiful boats on the man-made lake and the building and bridges surrounding it. We found a lovely Tea House there and enjoyed our Tea Ceremony.

We visited early in the morning. A lot of locals are exercising there. It's a very good place for morning walk along the lake, with bird chipping and breezes

This is China's largest public park and it doesn't disappoint. The views from the central high point are good, there are some very nice pavilions and walking around the water is great. A good spot to spend 30 mins walking through.

My hosts wanted to take me to somewhere different and having been to Beijing many times that was difficult. However we had had a very busy schedule and I said what about somewhere peaceful where we can relax and have a beer! Excellent.

This is a big park. Inside is very clean. For me this park is most suitable for jogging early in the morning. Always come to this place for mind relaxation.

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