This is a spiritual place very close to the heart of Beijing. The place is very nice and quiet. Temple is worthy to visit. Boat riding in the lake is also enjoyable. This is also a must visit place anyone visiting Beijing

We could see this park from the top of Jingshan park, especially its landmark white Dagoba. As it was near Jingshan park, we walked here after visiting Jingshan park. Quite nice to walk around, expecially around the lake.

The Beihai Park scavenger hunt with Bespoke travel was the best way to experience Beihai park with the family. So many interesting places, stories and details to discover in one glorious place. Kids can’t believe they have learnt so much while having so much fun.

Many things to see in this beautiful park and enjoy the fresh breeze off the lake waters. There are the lake, willow trees, lotus plants, fish in the water ( possibly young Koi fish), buildings and structures, ancient style bridge, and more. Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Beihai Park is very close to the Forbidden City and Jingshan Park. I made a friend at Jingshan Park called David, who spoke good English. He took me around the best bits of Beihai park.

Beihai Park is beautiful park and it was good getaway from the huge crowds in Forbidden City. We saw the wall of the nine Dragon, Pavilions, Pergolas, Gazebos all incredibly beautiful. It was beginning of November and cold, so there were no boats on the man made lake.
David played his flute at five Dragon Pavilion, which is amazing. He told me that he and the locals played, sang there regularly.
I really enjoyed at this park.

This park is simply breathtaking and beautiful. It’s quite large and peaceful. I recommend going here your first day in Beijing, to relax and get acclimated to the city.

You enter from the south and walk up to the Jade Flower island, home of the White Pagoda. This amazing temple was built over 1000 years ago for a visit from the fifth Dali Lama. The view from the white pagoda is breathtaking, and you can see out over old Beijing.

The center of the park is a large lake. Take a ride in one of the amazing dragon boats and cross to the north side of the park. From there be sure and visit the nine dragon wall which was built over 1000 years ago as a birthday present for Kubla Khan.

You can dress in old authentic emperor clothes and get photos made by the wall. This is touristy but fun and we enjoyed it tremendously.

Huge thumbs up. I highly recommend this park.

I entered Beihai Park through the gate opposite the entrance of the road to Prince Gong's mansion. Wonderful garden leading to the Nine Dragon Wall which is very impressive as there are only three of such in China. Very good photo opportunity. After that, if you are in a hurry, you could take a nice electric cart ride to the other side of the park where the White Pagoda is. Otherwise, a lovely stroll could do also. Very advisable to climb to the top where the White Pagoda is as the view is very rewarding! You can pay a further 3RMB to climb to a spot where you can see Jingshan Park and the Forbidden City, very impressive!

We went for a walk around this park whilst staying in the nearby Courtyard 7 hotel. It is a very tranquil place, amazingly so considering it's in the middle of such a large city, and very picturesque with it's lake, which was frozen over when we visited. There were people skating on the ice and we saw plenty of typical Chinese architecture. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
