The Forbidden City is no longer forbidden, you just need to pay the entrance fee.

It is a fascinating place... a few facts:
  • The world's biggest ancient palace
  • China's most popular tourist attraction
  • Almost 600 years old
  • A UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Contains the largest collection of ancient wooden structures in the world
  • It has 9,999 rooms (only heaven has more... was thought to have 10,000 rooms)
There were crowds of tourists (many of them Chinese) but I was lucky enough to capture these images with only a hint of the throng.
