"Skating on the moat at the Forbidden City" Top 5 Page for this destination Beijing Local Custom Tip by mke1963

Beijing Local Customs: 258 reviews and 381 photos

A particularly fun activity - and one which you can tell disbelieving friends back home - is skating on the frozen moat of the Forbidden City. The entrance is in Zhongshan Park and you can rent skates there for a couple of hundred kuai deposit. It can get very busy in at the weekends, but it is a good way to warm up.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
