This park is just across the road from the North Entrance/Exit of the Forbidden City (Palace Museum). We continued our tour here after exiting the Palace Museum. As the sun was already beginning to set (i.e. due to the shorter days of autumn), we had...More

This park is a must! It’s so pretty and offers the best view of the Forbidden City. I’d 100% recommend any tourist to visit this place to get a feel for the sheer size of the city and the Forbidden City.

If you want to combine with Forbidden City,I would recommend doing in the late evening to prevent heat. You can see locals dancing, singing, playing games and if you have energy you can climb the steep stairs all the way to the temple and it's...More

A wonderful place to visit and a small cost to get in. Great views of the city and quiet in early January. Friendly stall holders who gave the children gifts. A must do in Beijing.

Hi Daisy, there are bicycle rental companies, like Bike Beijing and the others, but Beijing does not allow riding in the parks. If you want to ride a comfortable tour around town and learn what's going on: check in on WanLin... More

Beijing Itinerary - Half During National Day (5 Replies)
I know its not ideal to be going at this time, but it was either that or not go at all. This is a quick itinerary that I have drawn up, and was wondering if people could give some feedback. Feedback in general, but also factoring in the time we are going, and whether we should go to some places on different days (ie, the best places to go during Natonal Day holidays). Also whether I am allowing enough time for each place (especially at this time), and if I have missed anything obvious....More

Hi, You are arriving at the tail end of National week holiday so dont stress too much. However your itinerary is all a huge mish mash of places not close to each other. You really need to look on a map & buy a small pocket guide to see where the places you want to see are located. IE; Your arrival afternoon / evening. Panjiayuan Market (Dirt Market) & Yuyuantan Park are located in different parts of the city. No way you will fit them both in. Leave your hotel at lunch time & go to...More

You put too many places in one day. Tian'anmen square need half an hour Forbidden City need 2 hours They are next to each other,so don't put Wangfujing in between Coal hill park need 40mins,Beihai park need 1 hour. These places actually like one day tour Day two i don't think you have time to put Zoo into the itinerary Day three, you are goind from south to Northwest,then coming back city.It is not a good plan Fregrant hill usually is a one day tour.

Doable During Golden Week? (11 Replies)
So I just found out that we'll be in China during Golden Week :( Is this itinerary still doable during this busy time? (72 hr travel without VISA) Saturday, Oct 4: arrive at PEK 4 pm Sunday, Oct 5: Great Wall at Mutianyu Monday, Oct 6: Summer Palace (Yiheyuan), Jingshan Park (Jingshan Gongyuan) Tuesday, Oct 7: leave at 1 pm Would we also have time to go to the Temple of Heaven (Tiantan Park)? Maybe we can do something Saturday night after we arrive? TIA

Yes doable. Are you booking your own driver to the Great Wall?
