Beijing Day 2 – Forbidden City & Temple of Heaven

From the Ming to the Qing dynasty, the Forbidden City served as the imperial palace to the emperor and his household, which included the advisors, concubines, and eunuchs. It wasn’t until 1925 when the Forbidden City became open to the public everyday.

The Forbidden City, according the other travelers we’ve met along the way and our travel guide books, is a must-see when in Beijing.
