Jingshan Park

Entry backdated on June 1, 2:57 am; pictures taken on May 25, around noon

If you ever needed proof that Beijing has lovely parks, look no further than the local gems that foreigners and tourists tend to overlook: Jingshan Park, for instance, located across from the better-known Beihai Park (entrance prices: 5 kuai for the former, 20 for the latter). If one only had three or five days in Beijing, it's a no-brainer that you'd see the Forbidden City, Great Wall, maybe Temple of Heaven or Summer Palace, maybe Sanlitun or Nanluoguxiang if you were young, maybe one of the art districts... Jingshan Park, for many reasons, would not make it on the docket. But look at what you'd miss:


No wonder the people above take so many pictures amid the flowers...
