"Palaces" Top 5 Page for this destination China Favorite Tip by nepalgoods

China General: 366 reviews and 336 photos

Favorite thing: To see some really spectacular palaces visit Beijing (Forbidden City, Palace of Prince Gong...) and Qufu (Palace of the Kong-Family). Most big palaces in China are a combination of a lot of smaller palaces.

Beijings Emperors used to have several palaces. Specially in summer they moved their whole household to the summer palace, where the heat is not as hot in summer as in the city centre.

Fondest memory: When I live in Beijing and was fed up with the people, the dust and the noices I used to go and visit the Forbidden City. The beauty of the buildings and the feeling of the long history made me calm down and enjoy Beijing again.
