Amazing views of Beijing! Mar 21, 2011
I went to Jingshan Park with some of my classmates and I have to say that it is one of my favourite places I have been in Beijing.

Its nice to get away from the constant hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a bit of greenery.

The ticket only cost 2RMB (1RMB if student) and the park includes various different cultural relics as well as a pagoda style building on top of the hill.

At the top there are amazing views of the city overlooking the back of the forbidden city as well as Beihai.

It is much recommended for anyone who wants to see a different side of Beijing!

Jingshan park Jun 23, 2008
The location of this park is its crown jewel. After walking through the Fobidden City all you want to do is lie down in the grass or enjoy some cool breeze at the top of this scenic hill.

At the top are two gazebo style buildings formerly housing religious relics. On a hot summer day you will find people relaxing here and looking out over the Forbidden City all displayed before you.

You can lose track of time on the many winding paths that will take you through bamboo forests and well kept gardens on the sides of the hill.

Entrance is only two yuan, amazing for this historic spot.

Terrific view over Beijing Mar 20, 2008
When you visit Beijing, it is a MUST to visit the Jingshan Park, located at the opposite of the north entrance of the Forbidden City. The park is one of my favourites in the city, because you have an absolutely terrific view from the top!

The entrance fee is 2 Yuan - so it is really cheap.

This beautiful park is located directly north of the Forbidden City, and its abundance of trees and manicured grass lawns are a welcome respite after the endless expanses of concrete. It is situated on a giant hill made from the dirt from the digging of the palace moat, and it is also the place where the last Ming Emperor committed suicide. Hike to the top of the hill for good views of the city.Another thing that I noticed is that the park is exceptionally clean. Even after walking around for more than an hour, I didn't notice a single scrap of litter.
Temple at the top of the hill.
Empty park bench.
