Some tips for you:

(1). If you are planning to visit the Beijing Botanical Garden in the morning, you’d better leave your home in the early morning no matter you drive your car or take the bus. You will probably meet the traffic jam if you leave your home at 9 am or 10 am.

(2). To visit the Beijing Botanical Garden at 3 pm or 4 pm is not a bad choice. The garden is still very beautiful at this time and it will not be very crowded like the morning. The traffic of Beijing is also in a better condition during this period of time.(info for your China vacations and tours)

(3). The Beijing Botanical Garden is very big but there are no good restaurants in it. You can bring your own food here if you want. (like chocolate, cookie, etc)

(4). In my point of view, the most attractive places of this botanical garden is: China rose garden, music fountain, Cherry Valley. The Tropical Conservatory is very beautiful too, but you will need to pay an extra 50 rmb for it.
