We just returned from our trip to Beijing where we visited the Forbidden City. It's defintely a must see, but DO NOT get the automatic audio guide. The darn thing starts narrating and describing the point of interest before you even arrive at that point and worst yet, there is no repeat button. It costs 40 RMB each. They wanted 250 RMB for an English tour guide which I thought was very expensive. So we opted for the automatic audio guide which was a total waste of money. So either pay for a tour guide or go through using a book instead. Don't waste your money on this useless audio guide. The same applies to the Temple of Heaven.
