Well, it is certainly impressive, but it is a very, very large site, crammed with tour groups. There were some beautiful things to see but I found the sheer scale overwhelming and exhausting. The garden was my favorite part. I suppose I couldn’t have skipped it though - too culturally important.
Plan to arrive early and spend the whole day here! Bring tons of water if it's hot; the price for water inside is about 2-5x the regular price and it can be a bit of a walk to find it. (It would be much better if the government invested in drinking-quality water fountains here, like they now have in the airport!) When we visited, half the City was blocked off for an hour or two so that some African dignitaries could have a private tour. Shame on them! This palace belongs to all the people.
I suggest to try to plan your visit on weekdays. Weekends are very crowded. Apart from July and August, it is closed on Mondays. Some key buildings can be closed so be prepared. An audio guide is recommended but do not expect to learn much about history. In summer it is very hot and an umbrella may be the best solution. Not much place to eat food so bring a sandwich may be life savior. It is a very big place (biggest palace complex on earth) so plan one full day for this palace and Tiannenmen Square.
My main impression was "My gosh, if I had been an ordinary peasant or worker three hundred years ago, living before electric lighting like a sardine, crammed in with 600 other folks, and saw The Forbidden City's high walls, towers, palaces and immense expanses, I would have been convinced that the inhabitants were surely gods on earth."
The Tiananmen Gate entrance I felt was the most grand section of the Forbidden City. Inside the buildings are all very similar and recommend the audio guide or a tour guide. The flow of visitors is One Way to the back entrance almost 1km away. We took a tourist tram 15CNY back to the front.
Massive crowds in season, plan 30 minutes online. More importantly, each ticket requires showing a passport - if your significant other is checking out souveniers, and you get to the head of the line, you need the other passport to buy two tickets. Fortunately we had mobile phones and I was able to get the other person.

PERFECT LOCATION. I would 100% recommend this hostel to anyone going to Beijing (and I already have!). The neighborhood is lined with food options and shops, so even if you are tired at the end of the day, you just walk out and see the city. It is a 30 minute walk from the Forbidden City. ALSO- they offered a complete tour of the least touristy part of the Great Wall for only 300 yuan. That’s bus AND entrance. It was a great experience, especially since I thought we would have to get there on our own and visit a high traffic section.

Location is superb, right next to the railway station, within walking distance of Tianamen Square, The Forbidden City and the shopping district around Wangfujing Street. The hotel itself is luxury style, but need to be slightly refurbished to really fulfill that promise. But nonetheless, the facilities are very good. A beautiful atrium, where breakfast is served, and the gym - though not big - has sufficient equipment to have a full workout. Wifi was ok in comparison to other places I´ve stayed in China.

We were travelling to Beijing for the first time with children, and wanted a comfy place close to the sights. This was perfect. Very spacious and clean. Great pool, kids room, health club. Within 15 minutes walk to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City (foreigners enter through South Gate), Beijing can be sensory overload if you are not familiar with China, so this was a nice place to come at the end of the day. Also, the APM in Wangfujing (VERY close) has a good selection of local and western food.

Very cute and cozy little hotel in a traditional Beijing hutong and traditional style courtyard. The courtyard area is kept very clean with nice decor. Room was okay but had everything you need for the price. Minimal interactions with the staff. Location is very good, only 5 minutes walk from Dongsi station, and a 10-minute taxi ride from everything (Forbidden City, Sanlitun, etc.).

This hostel is close to the metro and buses. It's an easy walk to restaurants, shopping and the Forbidden City and a good base for exploring Beijing. Some of the staff speak English. Good heating and they have an extensive western menu for when you get enough of Chinese food. Even though it's in the centre of a busy area it's quiet inside.

Great hotel, beautiful interior design and very clean and spacious. Great place to relax after the noise/pollution of touring in Beijing. Also good location - walking distance to the Forbidden City.
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...
