Reviewed March 3, 2013

“Ok if you are up for a loooong walk”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The only cool thing about it was elephants. I haven't sit on one, so it was fun. Otherwise it's quite empty and boring.

“Unmissable”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is within the Imperial Enclosure of The Citadel and should not be missed.It was at one time reserved for the private life of the Emporer and the only servants allowed there were eunuchs but now everyone can go there and enjoy its beauty!

“Mini Forbidden City”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Located in the Citadel but you wouldn't know it unless you knew about it. The whole Citadel is amazing, the buildings, the gardens, the colors, as is the Purple City.

“Beautiful buildings”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The forbidden city is definately well worth an afternoon. It's really interesting to see the layout of the buildings and learn about how the court was used by the royal family. Everything is really well looked after and the colours on the building are stunning.
