It was a cold winter evening in December 2019. We had visited Forbidden City in the morning and went back to the hotel to drop off family members who were dead tired from walking. My hub, daughter and I took a cab to Jingshan Park. As it was almost 4 pm and almost sunset so we quickly bought the tickets and raced up the hill to the peak.

There were many steps and along the way. Thank goodness I had been exercising and climbing 16 storeys of stairs was part of my exercise routine. Was rewarded with a breathtaking view of the Forbidden City during sunset.

There were many people trying to take their best shots of sunset of the Forbidden City. Do take your time to enjoy the atmosphere and the sunset on the ancient palace. It’s just such an enchanting experience.

We walked down the steps slowly after that enjoying the cold air during winter. It was very cold but coming back to the equator here in Singapore, I really missed the weather then.

The park is located just across the road from north gate of forbidden city. Recommend to visit the park after visiting forbidden city. Entrance to the park cost 2rmb. Ticket to the park is sold at the entrance. If one have yikatong(metro card), can use yikatong to tap at entrance and no need to queue for ticket. At the top, one can have view of forbidden city and view of beijing including the drum tower further north. Is also a great place to watch sunset. Best is after forbidden city closed at 4.30pm, head to the park and catch a sunset view.

Opposite the exit of the Forbidden CIty, the climb to the top gives a great panorama of the city.
The park is a restful place to cope with the buzz of the city and the heat .
There are some beautiful temples to see in the park itself
Entrance fee a few RMB - worth the fee.

The park is just behind the Forbidden City.
It is a very typical Chinese style park, which means it is well cared for and laid out very well. The temples are typical in the Chinese style, as you will see in hundreds of places, but still nice. The view of the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing is why you come to the park and make the climb, it is the highest ground in BJ. It is not a huge park and will take you only a short period of time to walk around, but you can easily spend much longer wandering and exploring. Admission was 2RMB, needed to show our passports to get tickets. Likely nice place to view sunrise and sunsets. Certainly worth the visit.

This park was built on the debris excavated when the moat surrounding the Forbidden City was dug many years ago. Since that time it has become overgrown with mature trees and there are numerous paths you can stroll on. At the very top of the highest hill there is a small building from which you can get a great view of the Forbidden City to the South and Olympic Park to the North. It seems to be a favorite for photographers. Definitely a beautiful place to relax and get a 360 degree view of Beijing.

After we exited from the Forbidden Palace, we crossed the road and directly in front of the exit is Jingshan Park. Climbed to the top and we were rewarded with a complete view of the Forbidden Palace in front of us. However, you may need to jostle for space to the take the 'perfect' photo as there were many tourists. Worth the climb however tired we may be after visiting the Forbidden Palace.

If you go to the palace museum, then you enter one way and exit the other. I know you are tired because of the walking, but when are you going to be in China again. Walk across the street and go here and climb to the top. You get a view of the whole forbidden city, which is spectacular! Do not overlook this!

There is much to see at Jingshan Park. On this visit we walked the zigzagging paths, enjoyed the flowers in the gardens, walked to the hilltop for the awesome views of the Forbidden City, and visited a temple.

Nice park. We were taken there by a private guide after visiting FC and at the end of the tour we were invited by her to be educated about teas of China in the tea house in the premises of the park. After a ten minute exhibition and tasting of mediocre tea we were forced to buy expensive unlabelled tins of tea : 300 grams of different teas 185 usd after bargaining. Always feels bad to be taken for a ride.. we could have bought the same teas in other places for 50 usd.

There 5 pergolas in Jingshan Park the middle, higher pergola have the panoramic view of Beijing city and Forbidden City. This pergola has Buddha temple and many people prayed there with incence. I spent some time in Jingshan Park as the locals were exercising, dancing and singing there.
Some of the locals were having a picnic there as well.
As I am keen on music, I stopped at the group who were performing near exit to the Beihai park. They said that one of the singers was from Beijing Opera and they sang there sometimes on sundays.
I really enjoyed being in this park and made friends with locals.
