There are few places in China that capture the vision, culture, and intelligence of imperial China more than the Forbidden City. With every stone, architectural design, and decorative design rich in symbolism and pragmatism, you can spend literally days wandering through this palace from the Ming and Qing dynasties. The Forbidden City was a home to emperors, courtiers, soldiers, slaves, and concubines for over five centuries, where intrigue, feuding, and mystery were part of everyday life. History is preserved beautifully in the Beijing Palace Museum, where a collection of over one million pieces of precious relics is housed. Wander solo or gain insights from knowledgeable local guides as part of a single or multi day tour.
