Beautiful park. Interesting people watching. Peaceful and safe. The Nine Dragon Wall is inside and is a must see. A beautiful way to watch people exercise, play instruments, sing, dance, play their children, go for leisurely walks. Several good restaurants within the park. You do need a pass that can be purchased if you plan on returning during your stay.

Close to the forbidden city, this park offers some really nice views of the lake, trees, and a modest temple. This was one of our favorite places in Beijing.

Decided to go here for a walk, it's nice park but it's not particularly special. If you have the time it's worth a visit but there are other parts of Beijing that I would consider a must see.

This is the main lung of Beijing, it deserves to go around enjoying the tranquility, there are people playing music with traditional instruments you can rent a small boat at the river.

I like to use the analogy that if you're in New York, you must visit Central Park. Whereas if you're in Beijing, you must visit Beihai Park. Absolutely amazing. So much culture with 1000 years worth of history and just simply beautiful. A very nice lake. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended during summer time. And a lot of small... More

November smog in Beijing badly undermined the scenic views. However, the visit was memorably pleasant because we came across a Chinese elderly couple who were ballroom dancing in the park with graceful chemistry. We left them for a stroll and on our way back, we realised that the same elderly man is also highly skilled in Chinese calligraphy. He was... More

This is one of the oldest, largest and well preserved ancient imperial garden in China. It is huge and spacious. I enjoyed the leisure stroll along the lakeside, with plenty of trees and cool breeze. It was rather peaceful, a good place to relax, and far from the maddening crowd. There were many locals passing their time here – singing,... More

Beihai park is probably best to visit in Spring or Summer. A little dreary on the winters day I visited. Beautiful waterways and pavilions that span a very large area. Great for people watching.
