Beijing's Other Large Gardens
Jinzhan Tulip Garden is smaller than the more famous tulip garden display that fully blooms in the spring inside the Beijing Botanical Garden’s 400 hectare park. Hundreds of thousands of bulbs sprout for a special tulip garden display there each year. It is on Wofosi Road about 25 kilometers northwest of central Beijing.
Another spring tulip garden blooms at Beijing International Flower Port in Shunyi District, about 40 kilometers or 25 miles northeast of central Beijing. It is a botanical research center and farm where you can also pick your own fruit. Tulips are a special feature of spring, but they can be appreciated throughout the year at these gardens.
You could spend a whole day touring these large gardens.
- Address: North of Jinzhan Xi Street, Chaoyang District.
- Season: The garden and its greenhouses can be visited throughout the year, but obviously spring is the best season for the tulips.
