April is a good season to see flowers in Beijing, and the weather is more pleasant than in March. Top places to see flowers include Beijing Botanical Garden for peach blossoms, Jingshan Park for peonies, and Dajue Temple for magnolias.
April is a good time to hike the Great Wall as there is usually pleasant weather and beautiful spring scenery.
About 1½ hours' drive northeast of Beijing, the Mutianyu section is the favorite of our customers with its majestic mountainous vistas, beautifully restored architecture, and fewer tourists.
If you want to save time, you can take a cable car to ascend and descend the Wall.
Beihai Park is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved ancient imperial gardens,with a history of over 1,000 years. It blends a lake, an island, and numerous temples and ornate buildings.
