Beihai is located on the northwest side of the Forbidden City, and together with “Zhonghai” and “South China Sea”, it is called the Three Seas. The park used to be a royal garden, with pavilions and terraces in the garden, lush forests by the lake, and beautiful scenery.
Beihai has a long history of cultivating lotus, which has been inherited and developed to this day. Beihai Park currently has more than 100 varieties of lotus, and more than 1,200 pots of lotus and various aquatic plants are maintained annually. From June to August, in the morning, in the middle of the night, and in the evening, the lotus catches up with each other and competes to open.
Here is another park with the charm of old Beijing under the roots of the imperial city. In the morning, there will be elderly people exercising and walking birds here; in the afternoon and evening, it is more suitable for boating in the park. When you come to Beihai Park, you can enjoy the exquisite buildings left by the dynasty; you can also sit by the lake, chat with the old people around you, listen to them tell about the unofficial history of the royal family in Beijing, and talk about the dusty past; Among the people who are kicking shuttlecocks and diabolos, ask them for advice. Perhaps this is also a way to integrate into the life of old Beijing.
