Reviews - What do customers think about The Forbidden City?
Beijing's Forbidden City Mar 26, 2003
A perfect guide to this amazing site. An easy to follow map allows you to identify each court and the buildings in it. The photographs and illustrative material are of the highest standard and the clear and readable text guides you towards observing details which might pass unobserved by someone not too familiar with Chinese palace architecture. I would not have got anywhere near enjoying my visit to this famous spot without this book in my hand.
