The Imperial Palace

The Imperial Palace

Wide, grand and just every bit eccentric, the Forbidden City is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting central Beijing. Also known as “Gu Gong” in Chinese, the UNESCO World Heritage Site was once home to 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties and the political and ceremonial site of the Chinese government for almost 500 years.

It is also the largest and best-preserved collection of ancient buildings in China and the world’s largest palace complex.

Built from 1406 to 1420 during the reign of Emperor Chengzu, the Forbidden City covers an astounding 72 hectares, surrounded by a 52-meter wide moat and a 10-meter high wall with a gate on each side. It has 980 buildings with the Imperial Palace being its most popular structure.

The Forbidden City is the perfect example of beautiful Chinese palatial architecture and it has inspired many architectural developments around Asia. The Palace Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and artworks that you won’t find anywhere in the country, which is why it was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Book one of the tours offered by La Vacanza to this stop attraction to get a better glimpse at the magnificent Forbidden City on your trip to Beijing.
