Beautiful park to visit, with lots of interesting things to see and take plenty of photos of! I didn't take a boat ride but plenty did and it looked fun. I purchased the extra to go to the White Pagoda too and it was awesome views. I loved the lotus flowers, and the willow trees everywhere. Plenty of toilets (... More

Really nice park for walking. Buy ticket with visit of island on lake. You will pass bridge and than walk stairs to pagoda on hill. Use boat to get from this island.

Use the North gate to enter, thats the closest to the subway. It's really worth the through ticket (otherwise you are not allowed to go to Dagoba, round city and several other places), but I would plan a half (or better full) day for it. Just explore, enjoy, relax and take pictures. The view is spectacular and several beautiful gardens... More

Excellent choice for cloudy days, the lake is wonderful and with lily on water is like paradise, definitely try boats on the lake, and take the bus circling the park to visit landmarks all over the park, the statie of nine dragons is great

Take a half day to stroll through this park. See buildings, pavilions, ceramic dragon walls, people practicing ballroom dancing on the lake, lake paddle boats, and beautifully cared for grounds,

Originally built by the emperor hundreds of years ago, the park represents the best part of the Chinese culture in a very relaxing and comfortable way. I went there in a summer afternoon jogging. Similar to the view I saw when jogging in New York City Central Park, I found trees, pond/lake, nicely set-up rockery, lawn and pathways. However, the... More

I thought it might be a bit dangerous for children...if you have plans to go there with your children don't leave your child alone for even a second... It was... More

Beihai park is beautiful! Went there around 6:30 pm. The lake was wonderful to walk around, and the trees are nice. Many beautiful flowers. Entry ticket was cheap too (10 RMB). A must see if you have the time!!
