We kept seeing a pavilion on top of the hill as we walked through the Forbidden City and kept thinking: this is a great place to see the City from, cant wait till we get there! Well, turns out it is across the road and isnt part of the Forbidden City. So we set off to visit the park on another day. It was worth a separate trip: beautiful park with a lot of shady areas to hide from the sun, grim history as you come across the tree on which one of the Emperors hung himself, more people excercising, dancing and singing (that last one wasnt necessarily a good thing though...) and after a very short climb (we just came back from Himalayas at the time, so to us this was practically flat) you get impressive views of the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing. It did get quite crowded at the top, but nothing we couldnt handle and it was a national holiday.

Located behind the Forbidden city this park is a must. After being in the craziness of the Forbidden City tourists, being in this park is very relaxing and the view are just amazing from the top where the forbidden city and Beijing Opera can be seen!! Great spot to go.

Actually I visited this place 3 years ago. At the ebd f north gate of Forbidden city, you can go to Jingshan park. You can enjoy the forbidden city from up there. Just prepare yourself as you will need more energy to climb:)

Another great place to visit if you are into site seeing. In the mornings there are a BUNCH of people just working out there and dancing and playing games. Walk all the way to the top and enjoy a BEAUTIFUL view of the forbidden city. Make sure you have comfy shoes to walk in and a few hours set a side to make this walk and enjoy the views it has to offer.
