To get a sense of how large the Forbidden City is, climb the hill in Jingshan Park to see it in its entirety. Sadly, the day we went it was pretty smoggy, so the colors of our photos are dull. For 2 yuan though, it is very worth it. The park itself is a kick, especially for children, with its... More

The park is okay, but the great thing about it is the great view that you can have of the Forbidden City. Probably the place will be crowded at the top, but if you wait for a couple of minutes you will get a nice place.

We woke up early and climbed the hill to the top of the main temple for a great view of the Forbidden City. The walk up was easy (about 700-800 steps) and took about 10 minutes. I imagine it gets very busy during the day and would recommend to go in the morning before it's too hot!

I think the best way to view the forbidden city is from the top of Jingshan park. It's breathtaking and you can also see the rest of Beijing from here. Not many steps to the top but it is steep. There are four small seasonal temples and the pictures taken up here are phenomenal. However here comes the nasty side.... More

A wonderful place to visit, especially while in the city. The park is very diverse and calming. It was hot while we were there but that did not deter from the beauty.

This is a must to complete your visit for the forbidden city. A wonderful aerial view of the roofs of the imperial palace. Be ready, though, for: hordes of tourists, and a steep climb to the top, a fight for the best symmetric view of the palace. Tip: go early in the morning. The earlier the better. Locals stay at...

I visited this place every seasons during these six years I've spent here. The ticket price is very cheap (2 yuan for Adults. 1 yuan for students and elders(only for Chinese citizens and... More

Take a riksha (tjoek tjoek) to let you drive through the hutongs. Make sure to bargajb, max 100 rmb is worth it. Ride is nice, but the best part is a busy street full of little shops and crowded with people. Definitely walk through this area / street.

I hadn't originally planned to visit this park but after being inside the forbidden city and seeing how vast it was I liked the idea of looking out at all the rooftops from this park. The park is so close by and we enjoyed our walk. Like so many other parks there are people everywhere randomly singing and playing instruments... More
