Make Friends with Scholars


Beijing is covered by golden leaves in autumn, making jogging a happy thing to do. We will recommend 3 great places for runners.

Tsinghua University

Sitting within Tsinghua Garden in the northwest suburb of Beijing, 54.8% landmass of Tsinghua University is covered by vegetation. Here in Tsinghua University, runners can feel the intense academic atmosphere and cultural richness of the ancient royal garden, and enjoy clean air and picturesque landscape. It’s also an ideal place to make friends with scholars and share your thoughts on jogging.

Reason for recommendation: Nice environment, academic atmosphere

Best time for jogging: Morning, evening

Banks of Houhai Lake, and Old Hutongs

As a part of Shichahai Lake, Houhai Lake is a place where runners can feel fresh breeze and old Beijing flavor while jogging along the banks and in the nearby hutong. The leisurely parrots and vendor's hawking in the hutong offer you special feeling and pleasure.

Reason for recommendation: Nice lake view, Beijing flavor

Best time for jogging: Morning, evening

Taoranting Park

Taoranting Park is an urban garden planned and built with Taoran Pavilion as the center, which is a tourist attraction in the south of Beijing. Covered by thick vegetation, Taoranting Park offers graceful landscape, negative oxygen ion-rich, clean air, and moderate tourist flow. The some 3km lake bank provides a great jogging place for residents in the south of Beijing at any time of a day. The presence of Subway Line 4 Taoranting Station means convenient traffic for runners.

Reason for recommendation: Ancient architectural culture, clean air, less-crowded jogging routes
