Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Ice and snow sculptures we usually all have seen somewhere, bur very seldom to this extent. So many sculptures and buildings, nicely illuminated by lights.
    I know Harbin in Heilongjiang province is the most famous, but this festival is very close to Beijing. The trip takes half a day only. We did it February 2011, by car.
    Friends of me visited us during Chinese new year in Beijing. We included the trip in their visit.
    We left BJ at 15:00. We arranged for dinner in a nice restaurant in Yenchin, on the way to Longqing. We spend 2,5 hour at the festival. we arrived in BJ at 22:00.

    If you are in Beijing during spring festival you have to check out one or more of the city’s temple fairs. We took subway line 10 to pangjiayuan and walked from there about 15 min. The park was a lot bigger than we expected and it took a good hour to walk around. Lots of decorations, food stalls and shows like lion dance. I would like to come back to the park during summer as it seems like a beautiful park. This temple fair was clearly very popular as there were lots of people.

    We went there last Sunday. The place was filled to the brim! If you live in Beijing, you can actually use your subway/bus card (交通卡) to enter the festival (10 yuan). The park is pretty big with a big lake in the middle. The area with the Cherry blossoms were full of people taking photos, so I would suggest avoiding the weekend if you want to enjoy the scenery.

    The Midi Festival is now based in Suzhou (near Shanghai) at the lake Tai Hu, the Midi Festival in Beijing was shut down because there were too much people within the last years. In Suzhou now about 20-30 thousand people come together for a weekend full of international acts of all music genres, electro, metal, rock, pop, hiphop, We have been there with a group of friends and had an unbelievable time. Everyone was incredibly friendly, food is cheap, beer is great and the acts are really as good as the stuff you can see at european or american festivals. If you are near it at this time of the year (days before 01.05) give it a try, you will love it!

    Badachu is a park in the North West of Beijing. It has several wonderful Temples with Budda's inside or other god's. People pray here and the atmosphere is relaxed and quite. If you just go straight up from the entrance you will pass automatically all the temples. If you go right you can hike up the hill either on a street or a small beautiful way in the forest. On top you can take the cable car down or a toboggan. Some nice restaurants are also in the park. You might also catch a nice view from the hill to Beijing if air quality is good enough

    The Grand View Temple is quite a small park for Beijing. But it is still a beautiful place to visit. They also have concert or theater on stage and it's worth to check when it is. I joined a classic concert partly and it's always such a pleasure if the people start to sing if a famous song is played. Inside you will also find some historic information or sometimes artist exhibition. Small but nice for a few hours relaxing

    This is one of the biggest tennis event in Asia with a combined tennis tournament with some of the best tennis players in the world. The site is the same used during the Olympic Game in 2008 but, with a fantastic new Center court called Diamond.

    To get to the Lama Temple we took Line 5 and got off at Yonghegong (Lama Temple). After exiting the train station, turn left and keep walking. After several minutes you’ll reach the Lama Temple. It cost 35RMB to enter the temple. Once you get your ticket (2 ticket slips and a small disc) you’ll go through a quick security screening where they will quickly have you open your bag for them to see. Don’t dwell on this too long; they’ll just want a quick peek. Then you’ll head up for the ticket takers to scan your ticket and you enter a nice and shaded walkway where everything is green. It’s so earthy and nice. Before you actually enter the temple, there will be a lady at a window on both opposite sides passing out free incense. If you don’t pay attention you can miss this and head into the temple without knowing that you get free incense to burn. Once you have the main temple you’ll be smelling a lot more incense as people are constantly praying and burning incense. This is a Buddhist temple so you’ll see the occasional Buddhist walking. I believe you aren’t allowed take photos of them. They’ll have several small halls for you to enter and view/pray. You can only light the incense for those outside and not the halls. It’s a nice and refreshing place to view, not much to do here except pray and see how the temple is utilized. We probably spent about an hour and a half here.

    It was much more than an horticultural exposition (5G, culture of many countries from all over the world) and I would encourage everyone to visit the next expo in Japan or Poland. After two days, I was not even finished.
