People visit Jingshan Park mainly for three reasons. The first is to see the best panoramic view of the Forbidden City and Beijing City. Jingshan consists of five individual peaks which draw the approximate historical axis of central Beijing. On the top of each peak lies an elaborate pavilion. Of all the five pavilions Wanchun Pavilion (Ten Thousand Spring Pavilion) is the most popular one.
Sitting in the centre of the five summits as well as the hill, Wanchun Pavilion is the highest point in Beijing. It is a perfect place to taking a bird's-eye view of Beijing City ; splendid and magnificent Forbidden City in the south, dignified Bell and Drum Towers in the north, along with Beihai Park and White Dagoba Temple in the west. The meticulous rectangular-shape layout of Beijing City is all in your eyes. The second reason is to see 200 varieties of peonies. The best time of visiting Jingshan Park is from late April to mid-May as hundreds of thousands of peonies are in full bloom. The third reason is to experience the authentic lifestyle of Old Beijing. JingShan Park is quite popular with locals who gather together to exercise, play music, sing and dance.
The opening time of JingShan Park is from 6:00am to 9:30pm and the admission fee is quite cheap: only 2 RMB! You can combine a visit to JingShan Park with Beihai Park which is nearby.
