Plan your Beijing tour? If you are lucky to have a clear night with good visibility in Beijing, having a few hours’ Beijing night tour is a smart choice. So where to see at night in Beijing? Beijing has much to offer after nightfall with numerous buildings and roads  lit up in a blaze of multicolored, making Beijing a place of surreal atmosphere.

Well, let’s start with Forbidden City. Though not allowed to enter Forbidden City for a night view,  people still have the opportunity to see Forbidden City’s night beauty. Climbing up to the top of Jingshan Park (just 180 meter stone steps) and have a panorama of Forbidden City. Or you may walk to the moat along on the northern wall of Forbidden City. The night view of the turrets of Forbidden City is stunning with traditional buildings coated with lights.

Standing on the terrace in the front of Wanchun Pavilion atop the hill north of Forbidden City,  take a clear picture of Forbidden City at night with the south backdrop of lit Tiananmen Square.
