    Beijing Botanical Garden

    Taking advantage of the unique climate of Yingtaogou which is surrounded by mountains from three sides and whose northern side faces the sun, the Beijing Botanical Garden has planted over 20 species of anti-cold plum blossoms, including Chui Zhi, (垂枝梅), Danxing (单杏梅), Fenghou (丰后梅), Mei Ren (美人梅), Lv E (绿萼梅), Zhong Ban Diao Zhi (重瓣跳枝梅) and other plum blossoms.

    Long Cui An in the Beijing Grand View Garden is not far away from Ximen. According to The Dream of Red Mansions, this is the chamber where Miaoyu (one character in the novel The Dream of Red Mansions) lives and is the temple in the garden.

    A great greenery with many open gardens and giant indoor temperature and humidity controlled garden.

    In August, there are beautiful blooms of lotus plants. Different floral blooms at different times of the year.

    There is an important temple inside the Botanical Garden worth a visit - Wofoshi Temple.

    In the North of town very close to the Fragrant Hill mountains is Beijing Botanical Garden.
    From http://www.chinaplanner.com:
    "It is situated east of the Xinshan Park in Beijing's Haidian District. The largest of its kind in north China, the garden was built in 1956, and more than 3. 000 varieties of plants are growing in its Peony Garden, Rose Garden, Tree Nursery, Grass and Flower Garden, Garden of Medicinal Herbs, Garden of Plants for Environmental Protection, and Garden of Water Plants. Greenhouses with a total of 2,600 square metres are open to the public, where 1,000 precious plants from all over the world are on display."
    The garden is really really worth a visit - for me one of the nicest park like gardens I have seen in China so far. The air is better than in the parks in town and there are numerous small lakes, meadows and areas to have some privacy and read a book or enjoy the natury feeling. The green houses meet any western standard and are very well equipped and the park is well designed, with trees from all over China, flower beds and you can also find cafees.

    If you want to get away from the traffic exhaust and enjoy a peaceful day an absolute MUST. It is wonderful.

    Kaktus, they are huge!

    The Beijing Botanical Gardens are divided into sections featuring a small lake, a variety of flowered gardens, a conservatory, and a Buddhist temple of sorts.
