"Old imperial garden" Beihai Park Tip by jonkb
Beihai Park, Beijing: 100 reviews and 180 photos
The garden slightly northwest of the Forbidden City should be on everyones must see things. It's actually two things to see here: The park itself and the round city. The round city has a jar, witch is said to be the only thing remaining from the great Khan that ruled what is now Beijing. I'm not sure which Khan they meant by the great Khan (Djingis, U, or Kublai).
You can rent a rowboat and paddle on the water.
They will restore most of the island before the Olympics, so I don't know how much will be open for public. They had already begun when I was there.
Directions: Northwest of the Forbidden City. 39 deg 55'23''N 116 deg 22'59''E
