Beihai Park (North Lake Park) is the biggest of Beijing's parks and located in the heart of the city. Its White Dagoba can be seen from far. This Dagoba has been build during 17th century, when the 5th Dalai Lama visited Beijing. Beihai Park also features a big lake, some flowers and old trees. Pavillons give you a place to rest. There is also a Nine Dragon Wall and some temples. If you want to see an almost unknown side of the park you should walk along the Eastern side of the lake. Here you find small hills and corridors, where the local people gather to sing Beijing- Opera or play their instruments. Here you see Tai Ji groups and old people dancing the Tango.

In the North the landscape of parks and lakes is continued by Houhai-Lake, where you'll find a lot of old living quarters (Hutongs) and some lakeside restaurants.
