"Parks - there are a handful of..." Beihai Park Tip by bokononist

Beihai Park, Beijing: 100 reviews and 180 photos


Parks - there are a handful of them, so check on a map depending on where you are. Go early in the morning and you'll see the old men hanging their birdcages in trees to chirp away while their wives do Tai Chi. They're really happy to talk to inquisitive foreigners, especially if you eat a traditional Chinese breakfast with them.
Blow up this picture to see the people doing Tai Chi - so peaceful.
