Gives you a superb view of the Forbidden City. Good exercise for the legs too! We did this after our whole tour of the Forbidden City. Then we walked down and had a nice stop at a bench to rest for a while before going on with our private tour with the private guide provided by Catherine Lu Tours.

Fabulous place to see the Chinese people doing what they do every day. It was a very short walk from our hotel so we went 3 times & saw dancing, singing, exercising, it was just amazing. The views of the Forbidden City are truly spectacular.

Well worth the walk to the temple at the top of the hill within the park. Amazing view of the Forbidden City complex.

Visit this park immediately prior to entering the Forbidden City from its north gate (directly across the street from the south, main gate of Jingshan Park. You get a great overview of the Forbidden City to the south, of the Drum & Bell Towers to the north, and the rest of the city all around.

Climb to the temple thing on top of the hill (which was made from the rubble excavated while building the FC, to protect it from the nasty feng shui that comes from the north). See if you can find the tree where the Ming Emperor hung himself as the armies who would take over and establish the Qing dynasty were marching into town. Go down the north side of that hill - especially on a weekend 0 and take in all the park life - music, singing, tai chi, and so on.

A great Beijing experience, especially on a day with decent weather.

This is a very pretty park - worth visiting on the same day as the Beihai Park. When we visited in late October 2012 there was a peacock display at the entrance, with lots of flowers in bloom. Another lovely green space in busy Beijing.

I should note that we did the ultimate tourist thing and paid 5RMB each to visit the "Jade Islet" (a cave with a collection of what looked like terracotta figurines) - bit of a tourist trap. Would not visit it again (though in the cave there was quite an amusing figurine with what appeared to be a chicken hat - no joke...)
