10 Things You’ll Find in Beijing’s Biggest Park

When you think of a big city park, what elements come to mind? Lots of green grass, of course. Maybe a jogging or bicycle path. Some gardens, of course. If it’s a particularly fancy park, throw in a zoo and a museum.

All those are quaint compared to the many, many offerings in Chaoyang Park. It can be both a frenetic place or a quiet and relaxing spot depending on what you’re up for. Here are a few of the more bizarre things you’ll find here that you probably won’t see in too many other parks.

I'm an American freelance writer who spent a couple years living in Cambodia. Now I'm on the move again and traveling all over the place. I'm willing to try any bizarre liquor that's presented to me. Any recommendations?
