Pay a visit to Beihai park-the former royal garden of emperors.

 

Hello and welcome to this edition of Easy Travel on en.chinabroadcast.cn, I am your host Yan Yinan.

In today's program, we will take you to Beihai Park, in the center of Beijing to show you around. And we will also take a closer look at some of the amateur singers entertaining themselves in the park and hear some of their beloved songs.


Beihai Park or North Sea Park is located half kilometer to the west of the north gate of the Forbidden City. The park covers a total area of over 68 hectares, half of which belongs to a lake. It's also home to one of China's finest classical gardens teeming with artificial hills, pavilions, halls, temples and covered corridors. It remains among the eight most prominent scenic spots in Old Beijing.

For centuries, the park served as the Emperor's garden. With the passing of times, dynasties decayed, the garden continues to maintain its exquisiteness and fascination.

Today, the former garden of the majesty himself has become a recreational center. The lakeside has become an ideal place for young couples to rendezvous and a great place to take a stroll.
Moreover, the park is a rally point for Beijing's amateur singers. Let's hear some of their songs:

Bands, singers and passionate musicians often gather at the delicate waterside of Wu Long Ting-Five Dragon Pavilions. Most of them have retired or on the night shift. They have the desire, not to mention the free time to express their talents through music.
