Beijing's autumn leaves have long been a popular attraction for tourists and residents alike. The city's tree-covered mountains are painted in all shades of yellow and red.
Mid-October is the best time to take in the sights. To assist, the Beijing Forestry and Parks Bureau published a list on Wednesday of 20 parks and scenery locations that are good choices for seeing the fall colors.
It reminded visitors to choose nearby locations to avoid traffic congestion and crowds.
Autumn is considered the best season in the capital, with great views of various types of trees.
