    Be prepared for long walks and steps. The place is awesome in the morning and easily accessible by metro. There are very few snack options so bring your own. Use the map to avoid getting lost. Go to the top for breathtaking views.

    Plenty of stairs and walking but really worth the pictures and historic value of the location. Some attractions close early so please come in the morning. The exits are confusing and suddenly you may find trapped inside.

    Quite a large place. The temple buildings were lovely.
    Cost 25CNY entrance.
    After visiting a lot of temples on our 13 stops throughout China, whilst I did enjoy having a wander through, I did think other temples I had visited were better.

    The place is large and takes long walks to explore the vast area. The daily flag hoisting/down even is a crowd pleaser so be prepared with published times to witness it.

    Jingshan Park is renowned for its artificial hill, constructed from soil excavated during the construction of the Forbidden City's palace moat. From the hilltops, you can enjoy great city views.

    This is a huge space dedicated to art scene in Beijing. It's very nice to explore and soak in the vibes.

    Some down points for us (nothing too serious):
    - shops there have different opening hours, some open after 2pm, some closed at 4pm etc so our visit at 12pm was awfully awkward as some places are not open
    - there's not a lot of food options inside so make sure you have some food before coming over
    - the area is quite far off the metro; I believe the nearest one is under construction, so it was quite a walk into the premise for us, and the cab out was stuck in heavy traffic for a while

    Uncrowded late March (tail end of the low season)we saw no more than 40 people enroute. It was impressive though restored. The dam was still iced over adding to the picturesque charm. Apparently the wild sections are no longer accessible due to the death of an American diplomat and his family 3 years ago (this is what local told us).

    We had a fantastic day here. Clear blue skies enabled superb views of the wall as it stretches out into the mountains. We were both carrying injuries so didn't climb high but the views were still spectacular. The wall starts with a moderate climb which quickly becomes steep. There are shops inside the entrance offering drinks and souviners. It's a must do.
