We arrived early on a Monday morning, the lake was calm and the bridge reflected perfectly in the water. The lanterns gently swayed in the trees as the old men wrote Chinese characters on the floors with water and large groups of ladies danced on every available place, an impressive, well rehearsed ex-military choir entertained passers by. There is a tranquil walk around the edge of the island, there is an impressive Long Corridor that clings to the water's edge. The centre of the island is filled with gardens, halls and pavilions, topped with the White Dagoba. On smog-free days I'm sure there would be excellent views over the Forbidden City, but we could only see as far as the pavilion on the lake, it was a beautiful, mystical scene. Bei Hai Park is a wonderfully tranquil place to spend a few peaceful hours.
