Too crowded to see anything.
, Aug 2019
Too hot, too crowded, too rushed, too stressful. Didn't see anything. Crowds were so pushy and intense that one feared being crushed at times. Impossible to take anything in. The Audio Guide is a complete waste. Tells you almost nothing that you can't read in the most cursory Wikipedia entry. We went on Saturday morning.

Dear customer Its really hard to buy Forbidden City Tickets in the end of August in such a peak season. Our staff get up in the midnight in order to refresh the offical website to get the tickets for you,we dont want anyone who back home with a regret that not have seen the Forbidden City. We thanks very much for your feedback but d this product is not a tour product, its only a ticket, and we would like to see you enter the gate smoothly, but please undertand that we can not control the amount of visitors, the weather, the traffics, I wish you keep a happy mood, and may suggest others to visit the Fobidden City avoiding peak seasons or holidays. We wish you have the most beautiful memory in Beijing.
