Beihai Park

Today, Brianne visited Beihai Park, an imperial garden that was built in the 10th century. The Park has three pools total, so Brianne took a ferry around to visit the different areas of the park. In total, the park is around 69 hectares large so it took several hours to see all the different areas.

At the center of the Park is Qionghua Island, which contains many historic sites on it, such as the White Pagoda and Yongan Temple. This island was the highlight of the Park for Brianne. But, other great spots in the Park she enjoyed include the Five-Dragon Pavilions, Nine-Dragon Wall, The Land of Extreme Happiness, and the Iron Screen Wall.
