Nice park with a very good view

Nice park, with a very good view of the city, and the north-south axis of Beijing. I was surprised to have to pay to go in. A good slice of local culture with nice gardens

The Jingsan Park is strategically located at the city center where one can have a 360-degree view of Beijing. A spectacular fish-eye, perspective view of the northern side of Forbidden City is best seen from the park which boast of lush greenery and serene surroundings.We also witnessed people (especially senior citizens) enjoying aerobic exercise near the main gate area where...

The park itself is nice. The scene of the hill itself from the north exit of the palace museum is impressive. Requires a short climb up to the peak, about 5-10 minutes. The views are good, but the crowd and the top pavilion may not be. Still a good choice of park with views to neighbouring attractions. Convenient with public... More

It is worth the very cheap entrance to see some great views of the city. I would say even nicer than walking around the forbidden city! Hike to the top of the hill, then head North out of the park to a pedestrian area near the ponds.

Fantastic place for viewing the forbidden city one you leave it. The views during the sunset are especially nice. Highly recommended

This garden is truly a scenic spot. if you aren't tired, a walk up the stairs to get an aerial view of the Forbidden City and of course see the angelic face of Buddha at the end is something to die for.

Get some dumpling or noodles for small money. Climb the Jing mountain for the best view over GuGong and Beijing. The temple sitting on top hosts and protects a friendly... More

One of the cheapest tourist attraction in Beijing as the entry fee is only RMB 2. Suggest that you should visit Jingsan in the evening, in order to see the golden colour of the majestic imperial palace complex. Be ready for the steep climb and wear sport shoes.

Sundays are special days in Jingshan Park. I added to my list of favorite places when I was introduced to it 5 years ago. Just north of the Forbidden City it was once part of the Imperial hunting grounds and the site of the last Manchu emperor's suicide. But that's the dark side, climb to the pavilion at the top...

Located at the north of forbidden city, Jingshan is beautiful park worth to visit if you are within TianAnMen Area, as tourist or resident. Usually is a crowded place during school vacation period, so don't expect to take good pictures of anything. Ticket Price: 20 RMB, several lines stop in front of the main entrance (you can connect to wangfujin),... More
