The Forbidden City is one of those amazing sites of the world that you must not miss. Allow many hours as this is a huge site to view.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This impressive gate is part of The Forbidden City.
Try to get a clear day, as foggy or rainy day will not allow you any photo-ops of this vast place.
The best effect would be around dusk, when the sun rays are caught in the gate's roof.

“Nice gate leading into the Forbidden City/Palace Museum”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Be sure to get your ticket first, then enjoy this beautiful structure right before you come out into a breathtaking courtyard. Be aware that the Forbidden City is Huge! So bring water, snacks, and expect to do a lot of walking!

“Super Cool!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

There's a lot of history here, and it's a great photo op! Wear comfortable shoes as you will probably be doing a fair amount of walking. This topped the list of attractions we saw in Beijing
