Forbidden City Tickets
The ancient palace complex, originally named "Forbidden City" but these days officially known as the Palace Museum, was home to the Emperors of Imperial China for over 500 years after its construction in the 1400s. Its original name came from the fact that it was forbidden to either enter or leave the complex without the consent of the Emperor himself... Since 1987 it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and welcomes nearly 17 million visitors annually.
