Recommend this place within easy access from the forbidden city and right around the corner from the famous hohai bar street. The park is large But not as huge that would overwhelm a visitor. It's easily possible to cover it in an afternoon. Make sure you climb up the stairs to the white pagoda. Very pretty views from up there. A paddle or electric boat ride is also fun in the lake. If you don't have enough time to go to the summer palace (which is quite a drive away) you may opt for this park. The outdoor areas are similar in style and what there is to see.

Casual afternoon visit with annual ticket, so it saved quite a lot of time of queuing. There are several people wearing traditional Chinese clothes taking photos.

Beihai Park is not just a tourist stop, but also a great park for a Sunday evening stroll. You can walk the whole loop in about 1 hour. If you want to see the big “White Pagoda” up close just add another hour (you can go to the top of the island in the middle of the lake for no extra fee, but if you want to go into the White Pagoda you’ll have to purchase a second ticket at the entrance to the pagoda). There’s a few food/drink shops scattered around the loop where you can buy water, popcorn, tea, ice cream, or corn dogs. Lots of cool windy paths on the center island (feels like playing Oblivion or Skyrim). Have fun!

The workmanship in the buildings were second to none. The gardens were beautifully manicured to perfection. Very relaxing visit. Well worth the look

More well known by the Chinese than westerners, but beautiful park on the other side of the forbidden city which is absolutely worth a few hours mooching about.

The Beihai Park scavenger hunt with Bespoke travel was the best way to experience Beihai park with the family. So many interesting places, stories and details to discover in one glorious place. Kids can’t believe they have learnt so much while having so much fun.

This is a pretty park to the NW of the Forbidden City that is enjoyed by many local families. You can rent boats in the summer and ice skates in the winter. There are a number of pathways to stroll for a relaxing afternoon.

We could see this park from the top of Jingshan park, especially its landmark white Dagoba. As it was near Jingshan park, we walked here after visiting Jingshan park. Quite nice to walk around, expecially around the lake.

This is a spiritual place very close to the heart of Beijing. The place is very nice and quiet. Temple is worthy to visit. Boat riding in the lake is also enjoyable. This is also a must visit place anyone visiting Beijing
