My Trip To Beijing…

Part 2: The Forbidden City…Permitted to all…

Part 1

 

The Chinese people have a phrase for unusual amount of crowded people; “人生人海 , ren sheng ren hai” Mountain made of people and sea made of people. That phrase applies that day because it is China’s national day. This is why during my vacation I couldn’t go to the Great Wall, as you can see why from the picture below.

 

This was taken the day I went to the Forbidden City by another Tourist.

 

I however managed to squeeze myself through and entered the much much less crowded, most iconic, and magical location in Beijing… The Forbidden City.

This device below is amazing. It contain every language in the world, and whenever you are at a specific location, it will automatically explain to you about the history, gives you fun facts, and other key knowledges related to the location you stand on.


I loved the fact that I was allowed to take as much pictures as I wanted. Normally, and in other locations that I have visited around the world, it is forbidden to take pictures of artifacts. I guess what’s forbidden is not forbidden in the Forbidden city… try saying that five time in a row.


There are tons of other attractions in the Forbidden City, and the pictures honestly doesn’t do just to the place. I am looking at them as I write; it is not the same when I actually stood in the middle of the historical wonder; they don’t reflect what I have experienced there. Or maybe I am not a good photographer as I thought I was. But if you ever get the chance to visit Beijing, then I suggest you spare four hours to explore the wonder that is the Forbidden City.

Until my next post… have a nice day.

      It’s because it’s Chinese National day. If you choose another day or a day that is normally a Chinese working day then it will be fine and really not crowded… which is why I plan to revisit Beijing one day 🙂

        That sounds much better.
