Nice place on a lakeside. Good time to visit is in the evening.
Located in Xicheng District Beihai Park is one of the most beautiful parks in Beijing and it is well worth the stroll. Quite big and serene area to explore, tourists can witness locals practicing Tai Chi. The entrance fee is reasonable. You can easily spend the whole day here as there are lots of things to do – go boating, visit temples, climb up the White Dagoba or simply relax.
Northwest of the Forbidden City is the picturesque Beihai Park. It's one of the largest parks in Beijing and features a lake, temples and pagodas among lush greenery. The White Pagoda, set on a hill, is the centerpiece of the park. Throughout the area you'll see locals exercising, playing chess and spending leisure time together.
Beihai Park was a place where the relatives and relatives of the emperor used to play. It was a street away from the Forbidden City to Beihai Park. After leaving the Forbidden City, the west gate of Jingshan Park is opposite to the east gate of Beihai Park. It took half an hour to lift the sedan chair. If the emperor has a bicycle, leave the north gate of the Forbidden City to Beihai Park in five minutes. So what is the role of Beihai Park? I think there are three things, no, four things can be done.
