Jinchun Lu, Tsinghua University
Tsinghua University is something of a temple in China. Locked in a quarrel with big brother Peking over which is the nation's most prestigious school of scholarship, there's no doubt about one thing: Tsinghua shades its neighbour (literally) with its impeccable gardens. A stroll around the enormous grounds is a must for visitors to Wudaokou. Stop at the lotus-filled Jinchun Lake, which is actually a moat that when crossed by an old stone bridge leads to a freaking island. This is your picnic spot. There's an impromptu old-man Chinese music ensemble every other day; dancing ladies from time-to-time, too. There is a café, but we're talking 38RMB for a latte, so best caffeinate before you arrive.
