Visited here in early October as part of a group of 14 starting in Tiananmen Square from where you enter the city. To say it is huge is an understatement. The buildings are impressive but unfortunately inside access is not allowed so you really see a large number of similar buildings over a huge area. It would be a good idea to read about the city prior to visiting as our local guide rushed through explanations in broken English and no handouts were given. I found the sheer size of it overwhelming along with the 1000’s of other Chinese tourists also visiting and scuttling/pushing everywhere. The best was the gardens at the back but we had little to no time to appreciate them as after our allotted time we were ushered to get back to the bus. Very little seating is available if you wish to have a rest.
