Beihai Park is an extremely popular attraction among the local people of Beijing and tourists also. It is an ideal place to go to escape from the blazing summer heat. You can paddle around in a bizarre assortment of boats. There are odd, duck-shaped paddle boats, and two types of motor boats.

In the winter, the lake freezes over and Beihai turns into a huge skating rink. Within Beihai is also the famous Fangshan Restaurant, where you can eat Qing Dynasty type food. This is quite a famous spot for the travelers in Beijing and a photographic session in the garden would be a fantastic idea. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Beijing itinerary 2 days.

  • Beihai Park is a beautiful park that we accidentally stumbled upon after leaving the Forbidden City and we are super happy that we decided to walk through it. There is a small fee (approx $1-2 per person). When compared to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City we enjoyed that there were less tourist to battle when taking pictures and enjoying the views. Also compared to other parks, we felt like this one was better maintained. I highly recommend adding Beihai Park to your Beijing travel itinerary.

  • Beautiful park! I walked around the whole lake which took 5 hours but it was worth it! I'm so glad we got a hotel by the lake because this place was gorgeous! I even went on an electrical boat that you drive yourself which was very fun!

  • This is the park that has the white dragon pagoda. A pagoda is simply a tower that has an ancient relic within it. Going up to the pagoda is a great place to start but what really takes your breath away is the lake! There is a huge lake with lily pads and they have boats that take you all around the lake. It was so peaceful and serene.

  • Beautiful ancient place , in the heart of busy crowded Beijing, this architectural masterpiece in the great paradise gardens with view on Forbidden city as well as a romantic bridge over the lake, were created centuries ago, hardly believe it 🌌 Rich history of Chinese Imperial , many temples to see and explore 💓 Defienteyl must-visit !👌

  • Quintessential Beijing. Gorgeous mix of ancient and modern. Peaceful, yet crowded. Exactly what you would expect.
