"Forbidden City" Forbidden City - The Palace Museum Tip by pmarshuk

  Follow the Flag
by pmarshuk

You cannot visit Beijing and not visit the Forbidden City, the old Royal Palace complex of the Chinese emperors. However it does get very busy and you will see lots of guides with their signs to attract the attention of their tour groups. Ours was a pretty Chinese girl waving a blue TravelSphere flag (that's the company I was touring with).

Address: North of Tiananmen Square
Directions: In the Center of Beijing
