Starting from the east gate of Forbidden City, or known as the Donghua Gate, we will start our royal experience in the Forbidden City. To avoid the crowds of visitors, we start our tour at 1pm. Our first visit is the Meridian Gate which always holds some special exhibitions from this palace. Then we will see the major buildings of the emperor's and learn some interesting stories of theirs. After that, we will move to the hall of treasures where we can get away from the crowds (kind of), and enjoy the treasures that used by emperors and empresses. And we can get into some of the 600 years old building and find out what is inside. I will show you the traditional opera house which was only used for emperor and empress, the bedroom of the empress Cixi. After all of that, we leave the palace for the Jingshan Park. Jingshan Park is another royal garden of the emperor's. We can relax in the park as an emperor or an empress, enjoy the singings of locals , and best of all, we can get to the top of Jingshan Hill and have a bird's eye view of the Forbidden City. A picture that you can get nowhere but top of the Royal City. (All entrance tickets are included in the package.)
