"Botanical Gardens" Beijing's Parks Tip by roamer61

Beijing's Parks, Beijing: 27 reviews and 64 photos


Not many people go to the Botanical Gardens when in Beijing. I did as I am into botany somewhat and particular flowers. The spacious grounds are full or various ornamental gardens such as the Rose garden with its numerous kinds of blooms and the herbal garden. The centerpeice however is the fabulous greenhouse conservatory full of tropical plants and flowers. There is even an area devoted to desert plants and cactii. There is a seperate entrance fee in addition to the gardens proper.
The Botanical Gardens are situated north of the Summer Palace and close to the Fragrant Hills.
Because of the location (no trains), best way of getting there is by taxi or bus.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
