DiTan Park 地毯公园, BeiJing

DiTan Park is based around the Temple of Earth and complements the Temple of Heaven (TianTan) in the south of BeiJing.

Besides the temple and altar, the park is filled with pine, gingko and cypress trees. There is an exercise area and children's play area towards the North Gate, a large croquet green to the south of the East Gate, and landscaped pavilions to the north of the East Gate.

There is a very popular Temple Fair held here during the Spring Festival which falls around the beginning of February.

Nearest subway stations: YongHeGong (lines 2 and 5) for the East Gate (nearest) or AnDingMen (line 2) for the West Gate.

The green space outside the East Gate is also very pleasant.

The Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival.

The Spring Festival (also known as the Chinese New Year) is the most important festival for the Chinese people and is when all family members get together, rather like Christmas in the West. Nearly all people living away return home. Thus, this is the busiest time for all transportation systems, starting about two weeks before the Spring Festival itself.
