27 Pavilion at Jingshan Park Overlooking Forbidden City in Beijing, China

To the north of Forbidden City is the 57 acre Jingshan Park. This artificial highland (called both Coal Hill and Prospect Hill) was created in the early 15th century with soil excavated while constructing the Imperial Palace and surrounding moat. Built on each of its five peaks during the mid-18th century is a pavilion. The highest one – Wanchun Pavilion or Ten Thousand Spring Pavilion – has a commanding view of Forbidden City. You will feel like you should wave to the gawkers as you are leaving the Palace Museum.
