Outside of the North gate to the Forbidden City you will find Jingshan park. Explore it a little, there is the tree where the last Ming Emporor hanged himself after a sound defeat. Climb coal hill (Man made to create part of the Forbidden City) and get a fantastic view of the great scale of the FC. Go further north... More

I love circling Jingshan mountain and sometimes climbing up to the top for superb views and sunsets. The back side to the north is often skipped and I highly recommend it on a nice day on the weekend where you will often run into amateur Peking Opera singers and other musicians.

Excellent view to see the sheer scale of the Forbidden City plus how large Beijing is, Sunset is nice. It is not as steep as it looks.

You get a full view of the entire imperial palace when you climb up to the top. Tix fees are cheap and the climb is manageable. This is where the last Ming Emperor hanged himself but the tree is a replacement one as the original one was chopped.

This used to be park/garden for the Emperors when they were still in power. There is some interesting history in this park and it is definitely worth a visit if you can spare the time. It is just south (across the street) from the Forbidden City. However, I don't think it is a "must-see"

Another one of those parks that the emperors built for their enjoyment. Located behind the Forbidden City, there is a viewing pagoda that allows you to look into the Forbidden City from a height. A place that the Beijing local old folks like to gather to dance and sing. Very interesting to visit.
