After a visit to the Forbidden City it is worth crossing the road from the exit and visiting this park. The entrance fee is 10 Yuan and it's possible to walk up the mound to gain an aerial view of the Forbidden City (smug depending!).

This park is probably the best in Beijing. You can explore real park life - sing and dance. You can get up hill and watch the fantastic views over city and forbidden city.

If you want a view of the Forbidden City from up top, this is the places you must visit. It is only $2RMB so I highly recommend coming here after visiting the Forbidden City- just make sure to visit on a clear day to get a good view!

This is well worth a visit! It's a nice park with a nice climb to the top where you get a view of the Forbidden City. Just make sure you go on a good air day so you have something to see!

After a good climb, the scenic view at the top is spectacular if the day is clear. The view of the forbidden city and the growth of beijing is incredible; an amazing city view.

This was one of the highlights of my 4 days staying in Beijing, It was suggested by a photographer, who made great pictures there on top of the "wanchunting" to the top of the small hill. It is actually a must see in Beijing center, but not every Chinese tourist knows about it. It is seems very popular among foreign... More

If you want to see the Forbidden City from above, go up to the top of the park. For photos it us best to go in the morning.

I went there after leaving the forbidden city, it is very beautiful and you can have a nice view from the city. It is a nice place to take a rest, and visit alone or with your family. I don't know if the entrance is always for free, but to me it was
