The Forbidden City (The Palace Museum) is an amazing experience stepping back in time to the Ming Dynasty and the 24 Emperors that once lived their. This is not the original palace built between 1406 and 1420. It was burnt down, sacked and renovated countless times so the architecture seen today only dates back to the 1700's and onwards, however its still a very impressive place.
The sheer size of the palace is in its self spectacular a city behind the walls.
The many building and temples are too many to describe, the design and decor are very interesting and our guide was able to show and explain the buildings without the information overload.
As with ALL places you visit no matter where and what you are seeing even the Chinese people are not exempt cigarette lighters are a no go, not sure why but its throughout China.
Visiting the Forbidden city is a must see attraction when visiting Beijing.
