If you make your way to the Forbidden City then don't forget to visit the "Nice Dragon Screen". For me personally it was one of the highlights of the visit .

When in the Forbidden City try to make your way to visit this, small charge to get in. It is very impressive and afterwards you can visit all the temples that many miss with less crowds in this small area.

Super lucky in FungShui and worth a photo. You may recognise it from the closing credit of the Monkey Magic TV series

This is located inside the forbidden city. It is not too crowded compared to the rest of the sights. it is a little off the beaten path. This is a big photo opp. It does not take very long to view. The art work is exquisite. I could not get the whole scene in one picture. well worth going to... More

I found this wall really interesting, despite it take no more than few minutes to check it out. Yet it is really well done and worthy a stop during your visit to the park

This is located on the west side of the Forbidden City and a big picture-taking spot. It is not too crowded because it is a little off the beaten path. Best not to try to get all nine dragon in the shot; just focus on 2 or 3.

Lucky 9 dragon screen is only viewable if you get the ticket to the museum which is on top of the entry to the Forbidden City. It's a screen of 9 dragons. There are apparently only a few left. Three? or Four? There's another at 9 dragon screen at Beihai Park, but it's on two sides, so there's really 18.... More

Beautiful screen...make sure to note that the belly of the white dragon has been replaced by a carved wood block! Otherwise this is a very impressive screen. Please note, this is DIFFERENT from the 9 dragon screen in Beihei park...this one is inside the Forbidden city.
