Embrace Refreshing Coolness in These Places in Early Summer


Every summer, Beijing becomes a big, verdant forest with lush trees and plenty of shade. It's time to step into these "mini forests" in Beijing to take in the cool and clean air.

Cherry Valley in North Garden of China National Botanical Garden

Rich in greenery, the Cherry Valley exudes a charming natural aura. The trees constitute a vibrant landscape with a vegetation coverage rate of around 90 percent.

The artificial mist can be seen every weekend from 9:00 to 10:00 till the end of October.

The opening hours are subject to change based on weather conditions, equipment operation, and visitor safety concerns.

Here, you will always feel at ease and carefree, whether taking a boat trip and floating across the sparkling waterways, jogging, strolling or cycling around the park, or listening to the sounds of the wind and daydreaming freely under trees.

Xishan National Forest Park

After 70 years of ecological restoration and conservation, the forest coverage rate here has reached 93.29 percent, making the park a haven for a wide range of flora and fauna.
