From entrance to exit, it is only a one-way street, so you can't exactly go out from the way you come in. They do have souvenir shops inside with average price. It is a long walk from entrance to exit with lots of seating area. From the exit, the nearest metro station will be at least 1,5km away. I think it's best for you to invest in Sightseeing bus for that day for convenience.
Best to find a english guide to bring you in. It will be faster too. And inside all the infrastructures are almost the same. The guide can provide good history on whats all the different houses are for...
You really need to reserve tickets online in advance. The official website to do this is of course only in Chinese; you need to use online travel service sites (ctrip or similar) if you are the average western tourist; it works just by giving them online your passport nr and pay by creditcard. Do not expect a confirmation reference number or anything like that: they apparently "register" your passport nr in the entrance ticketing system and you just go with the crowd to arrive to the gate and then show your passport to the guards. Surprisingly - considering the colossal crowds - it does work. There ARE possibly some tickets left for onsite purchase that you COULD buy at the ticketing counter on the day in the morning but A. you need to FIND that counter. Again, colossal crowds and immense spaces with practically zero information signalled in English... and B. they may run out in a few minutes after opening. (by the time you make your way through to the ticket counters those few tickets would be swapped up by the better informed/ faster local tourists)
I highly suggest to book the visit in advance. The place is really crowded and tickets go sold out really fast. It's tricky because you cannot book it on the official website more than 10 days in advance and it always sold out 2 days before. Also you need some specific information such as Chinese phone number (you might use the hotel one) and to book in on a computer not on a phone. I would suggest buying the ticket in experiences websites, you will probably pay a little bit more but you can ensure the entrance.
In summer when we visited it was extremely busy and hot. The automatic tour guide machines don’t work so well. Perhaps better experienced with a tour guide who can get you ahead of the crowds and explain everything
Amazing place! Book online, and check the treasures and the clocks exhibitions. They're worth the extra time. If you want to explore this place thoroughly or without a hurry, prepare to spend 4 hours +. To book online by yourself you need a Chinese phone number, your passport number and a computer. The online booking system does not work with mobiles or tablets. If you can, avoid the weekend due to the number of visitors. If it's sunny, use sunblock. Bring an empty backpack in case you want to buy special items from the shops inside the palace. Most of them are by the North exit. Save some energy at the end if you want to go to the park in the north of the palace, to see some panoramic views of the city and the palace.
This is a good little place in a hutong relatively close to the Forbidden City but still in its own environment, so you get a nice feel of what it is like to live in China. Big supermarket at the end of the road, but I preferred the more local one round the corner. Near the newly opened M Woods centre, but that is expensive compared to other places in Beijing. Staff were helpful. Beijing itself is a lovely place to visit and being able to stay here made it affordable. Nice trip to The Great Wall organised via the hotel.
Awesome hotel! A bargain for what we paid for. The rooms are very large and clean. Awesome pool and gym. The rooftop bar is bonus, however, a lot constructions around the hotel. The view is not the best, but the location is great for Beijing. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The forbidden city, wang fu jing and Beijing railway station area are within a 10 min cab ride. Breakfast is amazing, miles of food/drinks both Chinese ans western style. Will definitely stay again.
A restored courtyard house in Beijing's historic hutongs (alleys), it is almost a destination unto itself! Its location is fantastic--within walking distance of the Forbidden City and other areas of interest. Our room was beautifully decorated with a state of the art bathroom. And the breakfast included with the room was elegant and delicious. I can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel...if ever in Beijing again, I would have to stay here.
Lovely hotel at a great value. Our flight arrived into Beijing early and the staff allowed us to check into our room early. This gave us the opportunity rest before we went on our tour of the forbidden city. It’s a bit far out from the city but it is convenient to the airport. The hotel also offers a free airport shuttle and a breakfast with a nice variety of options. I definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again. Very clean rooms.
1. The hostels ambience was really serene, especially our room. We came as a family and really enjoyed the small but cozy room we had. 2. The ease of communication since the owner and one of the workers spoke really good English. They helped us plan our days in Beijing and helped us book tickets to the Forbidden City. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely come here again.
The hotel is located very close to the Forbidden City in Beijing and is very neat and spacious. The receptionists were very helpful and accommodating and were able to help us out with directions as well as ordering DiDi (Chinese version of Uber, Lyft, Via, etc.).
The location is good. Close to metro station and main attractions in Beijing. You can book tours to the Great Wall of China and Forbidden City at the hotel. Also, there is halal restaurant nearby. Definitely would stay here again!!!
Visiting the Great Wall and the Forbidden City is a must
Winter is a good time to avoid the crows, but you still have to be early for the forbidden city and the smog is of course worse in winter.
Don't use the Tours that are being offered , learn to use the subway trains are very efficient .You can get around anywhere in Beijing for 2 RMB , so traveling anywhere is very cheap .You only need to pay for your entrance fees wherever you go . The forbidden City and the Summer Palace gives you a very good idea of their rich culture .
Visit the hutongs area north of Forbidden City - a good experience of the very old and modern Beijing
The main places to see are easily accessible and not expensive. The Forbidden City is amazing (I paid for the audio guide), and explains a lot about the life and times of the emperors who lived there. Walking around the hutongs gives you the opportunity to see a part of the city that is still as it has been for many years, so see them before they disappear!. Of course a day trip to the Wall will help you appreciate how the Chinese tried to keep marauders and invaders out of their territory - quite an amazing piece of civil engineering even though it didn't in the end prevent Genghis Khan from entering the kingdom.
You cannot!!! Unless it is deep winter and snow has fallen... But do yourself a favor - do not travel to Beijing for sightseeing on the first week of October (National Holidays). Third day of holidays 2014 (peak time of course is the first) Forbidden City count for a day was 140 000 people!!! Weather wise best is September...
