Fantastic and beautiful look into life in the Chinese Imperial Court.

Don't be overwhelmed by the masses of humanity at the entrance. Once you get deeper into the palace ,it is so immense that you can can wander around and get away from the crowds. To call this complex grand is an understatement. It dwarfs Versailles. The treasures displayed in the inner palaces are beautiful. I would recommend watching either The Story of Yenxi Palace or Empresses in the Palace before visiting. It will give you a better appreciation of life in the palace and the back alleyways
