  • I strongly strongly recommend anyone who had never been to Beijing go Check this park out first! Of course on a clear day! You will see the entire Beijing, all the Famous landmark at the tip of the hill. its only 50meter high will take 10-15 min to walk up. Ticket is like 2RMB =40 US cents.
  • A short walk to the park from forbidden city.. climbing up to the TOP of a hill .. there are few pavilions along the way and you can chose to stop and rest. The highest one around 47m climb and you would be able to see it clearly the panoramic view of the forbidden city. The park has nothing much rather than having a great view of the forbidden city from the top. Worth a visit if you keen to tale more photo of forbidden city at the elevated land...
