PARKS
Beihai Park (northwest of the Forbidden City, between Dianmen Xidajie and Wenjin Jie) was established under Kublai Khan, the grandson of the famous Mongol warrior Genghis Khan. Formerly reserved for the nation's emperors, this magnificently landscaped park has retained all of its charm and splendour, and travellers can make a day of their visit to the park and the neighbouring Forbidden City.
