“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

There were about half a million people trying to enter the Forbidden City, so our guide suggested we walk around to the Jingshan Park which overlooks the Forbidden City from the north - what a great suggestion - the park itself is wonderful, and the views magnificent - an inspired suggestion.

“Grand overhead views of the Imperial Palace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This park is one to see and experience for all of its charms, beauty, garden, renderings and photo of the park and concept of it. The views from atop are the best around for the ancient original city layout of the bell towers and gong towers north of the park. The walkways up to the top are many and all uniquely charming pathways through forestry like trails. It`s worth the climb for the best 360 degree views of Beijing as seen in my YouTube videos from "Rob Banks."

“scenic stroll around a big pond”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The scenic stroll is very pleasant and there are lots of waterside dining rooms. The location is a welcome relief from all the road traffic.

“Best position to have a bird view of Beijing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

In the top of the small hill, you could see the full view of the forbidden city. Also you could find the CBD building at East. If the weather is good enough, you also could find the olympic sports center in North. Local retired people sing, dance ... a lot of fun or activities in the park.
