2 Days Beijing Tour: Day 2 - Explore Forbidden City

Not very tired as first day, I visited the representative attractions in center of Beijing with a good sleep in hotel suggested by the trip advisor.

Tiananmen Square

In the morning, I have breakfast in hotel and waited for the tour guide and driver. In fact, I like to enjoy the slow and quiet morning, so I got up early. The tour guide and driver arrived at hotel on time and we transferred to Tiananmen Square. It is so large that I didn't recognize it is a square first sight. Many tourists took pictures here, I was wondered that why they photo with a square. The tour guide explained that Tiananmen Square is the largest city center public square in the world. In minds of Chinese people, it is holy place for holding many important ceremonies. Located at center of Beijing, Tiananmen Square is one of the representations of Beijing. At same time, the buildings around Tiananmen Square are very significant in China, and the flag-raising and flag-lowing ceremonies are all held here every day.

Collections in Forbidden City

Through an underground express, we entered the Forbidden City which means that ordinary people are forbidden into this imperial palace in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest palatial structure in the world. It was the imperial palace for 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties with the most history and stories. Forbidden in that that, but now it is a famous attraction of Beijing and a vast museum collecting and showing various treasures that you cannot enjoyed before. It is said that it has more than 900 buildings, gates and structures were built with arrangement along the north south central axis of old Beijing. It is advisable to take pictures as much as you can, this is the only way to bring back your memory while reviewing from the album. Interestingly, I took various pictures of porcelain. It is not an easy thing to visit this huge city carefully in one or two days. It needs you patient experience and taste to know about the long history of China.

Last, we moved to visit the Temple of Heaven which is also an imperial building for sacrificing god in ancient time. It is said that this garden is larger than Forbidden City. However, I thought the Forbidden City is still the most attractive with various stories.
