Beihai Park

Beihai Park, situated to the north-west of the Forbidden City, is one of the oldest of China's imperial gardens being over 1,000 years old. It contains a number of interesting buildings but seems largely ignored by many tourists and so relatively peaceful. Unfortunately we did not go into the park until late in the afternoon as most of the sites were closing.
