Guided tour of the Forbidden City and Imperial Palace


We will visit the famous Imperial palace and the Forbidden City which is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world. The Forbidden City was the former imperial palace which was the home to twenty-four Chinese emperors over 491 years between 1420 and 1911. The Palace Museum is often called the Forbidden City, because it was off-limits to most of the world for 500 years, nobody except members of Imperial court were allowed inside. Listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1987, the Palace Museum is now one of the most popular tourist attractions world-wide. The Forbidden City is the world's largest surviving palace complex and one of the best preserved in China.
