  • 珍寶館在故宮的東部,要参觀的話,需要額外買票很奇怪。展示的是以前皇室所使用的珍寶,和外國的貢品或禮物,看看可以,在夏天算涼快的地方。 
  • Grand tourist attraction. Plenty of Chinese history for days. My experience: I bought an Electronic Guide. Big mistake - it gives you around 3 sentences of information at every point around the Forbidden City. Not worth the 40 Yuan. Also, there are many tour guides outside the site offering to take you, you're better off with them.
  • Impressive courtyards and Chinese architecture. Buildings are preserved moderately well. A tour guide was helpful here and provided some good historical context behind the design of the cities. A tourist who loves history could spend days going through the palace. For someone looking to get the gist of the Forbidden Palace and understand what life was like back in ancient China, it might only take 1.5 hours.
  • impersive erivisetball .i love the pictures and the place you will love it toooooooooo !!!!!!!!
  • China palace for ching dynasty. The wood material for building is very rare and valuable but is kept well. It is a good place to understand how china 's king behave by visiting the place they live and work.
  • Well preserved but over crowded place. I have been here multiple times. The longest waiting queue is for the first security check to get near the forbidden city, there is another queue to get inside and another security check. Don't go here on Chinese holidays. Take a whole day to see everything. Avoid the weekends and start early in the morning. Do not talk to the people at the exit, who offer hutong or riksha tours - they will rip you off!
