Beijing Sights

Qianhai and Houhai (Qiánhǎi, Hòuhǎi)

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Fodor's Review

Most people come to these lakes, along with Xihai to the northwest, to stroll and enjoy the shoreside bars and restaurants. In summer you can boat or fish. In winter, sections of the frozen lakes are fenced off for skating. This day-trip is easily combined with a visit to Beihai Park or the Bell and Drum towers.
