After getting out, rent a sharing bike and ride westward for about five minutes, you will find Beijing Exhibition Hall on your right side. To save time, you are advised to only appreciate its Russian style exterior by roadside.
Once a royal garden in the Ming (1368 - 1644) and Qing (1644 - 1911) dynasties, Beijing Zoo is one of the largest zoos with various kinds of animals in China. We specially recommend that you pay a visit to the panda house to see the lovely pandas eating bamboo and playing with each other.
The combo ticket for the Zoo and Panda Hall is CNY19 from April to October and CNY14 from November to Next March. To go inside, you need to store the bike beforehand.
Constructed in 1957, it is the first observatory in China. There you can see many interesting exhibitions and also learn some astronomical knowledge. The admission fee is CNY20 and an additional charge is required for the theaters.
The park takes up an area of 47.35 hectare, and one third of it is covered by water, including one river, one canal, and three lakes. As the name suggests, the park is also abundant with all kinds of bamboos. The park is free of charge and it will be very relaxed to have a rest while enjoy the beautiful scenery.
It is one of the largest libraries in the world for its rich collection and number of librarians. It’s also free of charge but you need to make a reservation in advance on its official WeChat account.
As the largest and best-preserved royal garden in China, the Summer Palace boasts breathtaking scenery and grand imperial buildings. Lakes, hills, bridges, long corridor and the old buildings make a perfect combination in the park. The admission fee is CNY30 from April to October and CNY20 in other months and you’d better make a booking in advance from TravelChinaGuide or its official website.
2. Before going inside the scenic spots for sightseeing, remember to park and lock the sharing bike properly. After, you may scan the QR Code to rent another one. Each ride is generally CNY1.5 per half an hour.
