Shijingshan Amusement Park: Why travel to Beijing just to visit an amusement park? Because it is colorful, entertaining, uniquely Chinese andduring May the weather is perfect to enjoy the water rides, that aren’tavailable in April yet avoiding the intense outdoor heat of June. Located in the Shijingshan district of Beijing the park offers live shows, family oriented restaurants and nighttime entertainment make this the perfect May destination for family and friends alike.
Botanical Garden: May time isn't just play time in Beijing. It's a time to “go Botanical”. So much is encompassed in Beijing’s Botanical Garden,the largest of its type in Asia: Long Jiao Temple, Reclining Buddha Temple, Exhibition Green houses and so much more. And with floral life at its peak in May, no time is better to visit this garden, a stone’s throw away from Fragrant Hill in Hai dian District.
Be aware: May marks the beginning of the busy travel season, but flights, hotels, and tourist attractions don't get more expensive until later in the year, in the peak travel season from June to October. However, May 1 to 3 is the Labor Day holiday, when hotel rates are often higher than usual, and tourist attractions are crowded. If you plan to travel during this period, you are advised to book everything in advance.
