Day 13 : Beihai Park

Days 8-12 basically consisted of work work work so I won’t bore you with the details there… leading us to Saturday 11th, my 13th day on the other side of the world! Today I went to Beihai Park, an imperial garden northwest of the Forbidden City in Beijing. Containing a huge man-made lake with an island in the centre and landscaped gardens, the park contains some interesting Buddhist artefacts, an impressive dragon screen (to ward off evil spirits) and an assortment of older people doing Thai Chi and practising calligraphy on the pavement!


All in all, a nice place for a leisurely stroll! More photos here.

  1. Hi E! Thanks for your comment 🙂 It's great to see CNY in London, if you're interested here is how it looked last year –

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Very nice David. We liked the elephant one. We are going to London for Chinese New Year this year for my (Ella's) birthday.
