Today woke up early in the morning to walk to Beihai Park which located around 30 minutes walking distance from where I stayed. Beihai park is situated in the Xicheng District and it covers 171 acres with over a half covered by water. This is a beautiful place and I covered almost all..... very tiring walking around like this but the scenery make it wort it to walk this long hours.

It was once a royal garden with the whole park divided into 4 scenic areas :

* Qionghua Islet (Jade Flower Islet)
covers with halls , rockeries and pavillions. The Yong'an temple is the largest building which composed of several halls,bell tower and drum tower. This place used for worship place by the Emperors and Empereses

* Circular City
surrounded by wall and you could find Chenguang Hall with yellow glaze tiles and green glaze eaves. Seriously this is one nice and peaceful place to  study and meditate... at least for me.

* The Eastern bank area - no comment hheheheee forgotten where was it again... but I know they have many courtyard here.

* The Northern bank area - you could find that famous Nine Dragon Wall and this place is the place for emperor go fishing under the bright moon.
