Historic Park in Downtown Beijing
The graceful lines of the White Dagoba is probably the first thing you'll notice at Beihai. Cross over the arched stone bridge or hop a boat to reach the dagoba, which is located on Jade Flower Island. You can also spend an entire morning just wandering the willow-lined avenues, but be sure to pass by the Five Dragon Pavilions, where locals often congregate to sing and dance. Just north of the pavilions is the Nine-Dragon Wall, which features lithe ceramic dragons twisting across both sides of a vivid blue and green backdrop. There's also a number of Buddhist temples dotted around the park.
