Forbidden City, Beijing: 53 reviews and 57 photos


Fondest memory: You will get a pleasant surprise when you see just how massive this whole Forbidden City really is. So there! Imagine - the Emperors of the Qing Dynasty NEVER once stepped out of this place to see the outside world until Emperor Qian Long came to power. He disguised himself as a commoner and had a great time mingling with his subjects. I don't know how true this is.
