Went there early in the morning with a friend, to catch some of the local life and experience more of China - we therefore didn’t look around much, just people-watched. We arrived 7:15AM and there was still plenty going on: Rhythm Clapping Several forms of...More

Beihai Park is very pleasant place for a walk. Lots of people (of course), but nice 'Sunday' atmosphere (no matter what day it is). Nice view at the lake, island and temple. Some people walking, some dancing, some practicing TaiChi, some playing with kids. I...More

But I enjoyed Jingshin (next door) a bit more - recommend walking through both for a great time. Got some great pictures here.

With a guide you can easily cover this in a couple hours. We learned a ton and feel this is part of Beijing's history and worth seeing.

This is where the emperor would go to as a getaway! Beautiful area and grounds! Building are very clean! Lake is beautiful and a boat ride is a must! You can rent small boats that you drive by the hour! A MUST SEE in Beijing!

After you complete the Forbidden City, this is a hidden gem that is an easy walk. There are almost no foreigners here. This is an example of a great urban park, a green space in the middle of Beijing. There is a nice lake with...More

Beihai Park surrounds Beihai Lake, whose island has the White Pagoda. This occupies the site of Kublai Khan's palace. It is perfect for an afternoon walk. Be sure to take a boat ride on the lake - it is beautiful.

After walking thru all of the historical sites in Beijing, walking around the lake and within the trees was a very nice change. It was just as stunning and the other sites, but provided some relaxation after days of touring around.

Nice park. They have a similar corridor to the long corridor with many hand painted small murals. Coming from Jiangshan Park this park seemed over priced. But maybe the boat fare is included. Not sure as we didn’t use it.

There is a cafe inside this park but mainly sells snack foods and ice creams, cold drinks. No hot drinks though.
