After taking some pictures on the square, we walk into the Forbidden City, a grand Royal Palace for Ming and Qing dynasties. Besides the large scale and unique wooden structure of this ancient architectural complex, the more interesting part of this would be the historical and mysterious stories and legends about the imperial life that you will hear from your guide.

Its magnificence is incomparable. After that a jade store is arranged. As there is no good restaurant close to the wall, we leave the lunch on your own and you may have some fast food nearby with the recommendation of your guide.
