Top destination around Happy Magic Water Cube - Beijing

The Forbidden City remains one of the most famous and widely visited landmarks of Beijing. It is possible to visit this place of interest during an excursion, but not many have an opportunity to look at this unique landmark from high above. The most suitable observation deck for that is located on Jingshan Hill, a climb to which may become an unforgettable adventure. The height of the manmade hill is 45 metres, and it’s better to start your walk to the top from the Southern Gate of the park as this way you will be able to admire the view of beautiful pavilions and Buddhist buildings. On top of the hill you will find the pavilion of Eternal Spring and several observation decks that offer breath-taking panoramic view of the Forbidden City.

Do you want to explore the heart of “old Beijing” away from numerous tourist groups? If so, make a walk to Hutong Houhai as this district is known as one of the oldest and most authentic places in the city. Just like hundreds of years ago, locals live in small one-storey houses with charming inner yards. However, rickshaws are already common in this secluded area and they actively promote their services. Travellers, who want to observe all hidden parts of the district and make numerous interesting and memorable photos, are recommended to make a foot walk.
