Discover The North Sea Park (Beihai) China

Previously an imperial garden under the Liao, the Jin, the Yuan, the Ming and the Qing Dynasties, today this park is still one of the most beautiful sites in Beijing. It stretched out over 170 acres to the northeast of the Imperial Palace, with a lake that covers more than half of the park. The main entrance opens out on to the Circular Wall (Tuancheng) that marked the centre of the Mongolian capital. Scattered with pavilions, temples and monuments, Beihai Park is above all a place for relaxation. The locals picnic here in summer and skate over the frozen lake in winter. The Bridge of Everlasting Peace, which is over six centuries old and leads to Hortensia Island; the Pavilion bathed in light with its Buddha in white jade set with precious stones; and the Nine-Dragon Wall built in 1417 as protection against bad spirits, are just a few of the reasons to take a stroll through the park.
