Unser Tour Guide war sehr gut informiert und sprach auch sehr gut deutsch. Zu Beginn war er ziemlich hektisch und lief uns fast schon davon, so schnell war er. In der Verbotenen Stadt hat er es dann ruhiger angehen lassen und die Tour war prima.Die verbotene Stadt zu sehen isz ja ein Muss in Peking und so haben wir es auch auf uns genommen, den Platz des himmlischen Friedens und die Verbotene Stadt zu besichtigen. Man muss sich im klaren sein, dass man ganz hauptsächlich die Gebäude sieht auf dem Platz und der Stadt, keine Spuren mehr von alter Pracht im Inneren. Auf dieser Tour bekommt man auch ein gefühl dafür, wie viele Chinesen es gibt und dass sie auch gerne Reisen.

Begin with a visit to Beijing’s famous Tian’anmen Square; stroll and explore, making sure not to miss the chance to learn more about this attraction’s significant role in Chinese history. Continue to the Forbidden City, home to Chinese Emperors from the Ming to the Quing Dynasties—although no longer housing Emporers, the Forbidden City does contain the Palace Museum and thousands of priceless artifacts from throughout Chinese history.

Immerse yourself in the history of Beijing with the assistance of your own personal guide! They will share their considerable knowledge of all things imperial as you explore the Forbidden City!
