The Forbidden City (also known as Palace Museum) was the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties. This is the world's largest palace complex. Construction began in 1407.

You can rent the English audio tour/headset.

You can probably spend a whole day walking around this complex. (If it is in the summer, you probably can only handle half the day because of the humidity and heat).
