Beijing is home to a host of parks with different styles and scenery. But the best point is in Jingshan Park, the highest place in old Beijing that overlooks the magnificent Forbidden City.
Wanchun Pavilion (Pavilion of Everlasting Spring) on the central peak in the park sits at the central axis of Beijing. From this pavilion, you can appreciate the resplendent and brave the Forbidden City to the south, the dignified Drum Towers in the north, Beihai Park, White Pagoda, as well as the eye-catching Central Television Tower in the west, and CBD area including the Phrase III of the China World Trade Center to the east. The Forbidden City would be quite spectacular in a wide-angle lens. Looking around, you will drink in the charming scenery from all quarters. Here, Beijing will show you its grandeur and glamour.
