We were the only westerners in the park on a Saturday morning. It was delightful and interesting. We discovered there are ancient links - some of the Ming emperors used a temple there for sacrifices on the equinox. But there was more: the locals use...More

The name of this park means "Altar of the Sun." I paid a visit to this free-admission park during lunch hour of my conference in Beijing. Nestled in the business district, this park is the oasis where locals hang out for a hearty singsong and...More

Beijing lacks green spaces, period, and especially so in center city. This is a great park in the old Embassy area, so really among the most tree covered places in the entire city. Daily tai chi classes (often to a weird Chinese-techno beat), along with...More

I didn't have much time and was able to walk to this nice park that is close to my hotel in the Central Business District. Very relaxing with lots of trees and a few neat things to see. I would recommend this if you park.
