The For­bid­den City. It is sim­ply il­le­gal not to visit this iconic palace com­plex, but bear in mind that you won’t be the only per­son there, and af­ter two hours of un­end­ing halls and gates and push and shove, you’ll be in need of respite. Start at around 10am to avoid crowds, or if you pre­fer to do it in the af­ter­noon, time your exit with a sun­set view from atop the hill in Jing­shan Park, just over the road from The For­bid­den City’s north gate exit. Fin­ish with sup­per at TRB (see Rest/glam). Clever pop­pet. North of Tianan­men Sq / 8500 7428 / 8.30am-5pm in sum­mer, till 4.30pm win­ter / closed Mon / rent au­dio guides from Meri­dien Gate / see Very Use­ful for tour guides /故宮/天安門廣場北面
