The Beijing Palace Museum was established in 1925. It was in the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is also known as the Forbidden City and the Forbidden City! It can be said that the Forbidden City is the deserved king of attractions in Beijing and even in China. The reason for this is because the Forbidden City in Beijing is really a place where you do n’t have the money to visit! As a senior travel practitioner in Beijing, I will give you a detailed tour guide of the Forbidden City today. I believe it will help everyone!
- Are the Forbidden City and the Palace Museum the same place?
The Forbidden City is the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is the Forbidden City that we have seen countless times on TV. In 1925, this imperial palace became China’s best museum—the Beijing Palace Museum! So the Forbidden City is the Palace Museum. One of them is the abbreviation and the other is the full name. They actually refer to the same place!
- How to buy tickets for the Forbidden City?
The Forbidden City has fully implemented online ticket purchase. There is no longer a ticket purchase window at the scene, and only a comprehensive service window is reserved to solve the problem of ticket purchase for special passengers! So, we can buy tickets through the official website of the Forbidden City!
There are some other things to note when buying tickets to the Forbidden City:
(1) Forbidden City’s real-name system is used to purchase tickets. When buying tickets, you need to fill in the ID number and name of the actual visitor (for children who do not have an ID card, fill in the account number)! After buying a ticket, swiping your ID card on the day of the visit is a ticket check! Some friends said they wanted a paper ticket to commemorate, but I’m sorry, there is no paper ticket in the Forbidden City!
Real-name ticket purchase
(2) Two kinds of people are free of charge: children under 1.2 meters in height or children under six years of age are exempted, and people with disabilities are exempted with a disability certificate!
(3) There is no so-called children’s ticket in the Forbidden City. You can purchase student tickets from the age of 6 to 18 years. You do not need to show your student ID. You only need to look at the age! Students over the age of 18 can purchase student tickets, but you need to show your student ID when entering the park!
(4) For the purchase of tickets for the elderly over 60 years old, the Forbidden City does not offer free tickets to the elderly, so 100-year-olds need to buy tickets for the elderly!
(5) Forbidden City ticket price: off-season (big ticket from January to March: 40 yuan, combined ticket 60 yuan), high season (big ticket from April to October 60 yuan, combined ticket 80 yuan)!
Other details can go to the official website to take a closer look, no longer sloppy! Now [emphasis] is coming!
(6) In order to better protect the Forbidden City, the Forbidden City has a limit of 80,000 per day. The limit is to limit the sales of 80,000 tickets. Those who buy tickets can go to visit. Those who have not bought tickets are sorry. Do not let you visit! Because of this, netizens joked that the Forbidden City is an attraction that you may not have access to if you have money! Especially on holidays (Spring Festival, summer vacation), 80,000 tickets are often sold out four or five days in advance! Therefore, to visit the Forbidden City on holidays, be sure to purchase tickets for the Forbidden City in advance!
- How many ticket gates does the Forbidden City have? Which doors can I visit?
The Forbidden City implements a one-way tour system from south to north. Tourists enter from the south gate (that is, the noon gate, the only ticket gate of the Forbidden City), and the north gate leaves! If you want to get to the South Gate ’s regular route, you must pass Tiananmen. In the high season, there are many people. At this time, we can go from Donghuamen to the Wumen ticket gate!
- What is the best tour route of the Forbidden City? how long it takes?
Of course, it is from south to north along the central axis! Look at the floor plan first!
The best route: Wumen-Taihedian-Zhonghedian-Baohedian-Qianqing Palace-Jiaotian Temple-Kunning Palace-Royal Garden-Shenwu Gate, the visit takes 3 hours!
- Finally, I will draw another important point for you: Is it so complicated to buy tickets for the Forbidden City? Is there a more affordable and convenient way! The answer is yes!
There are many travel agencies on a treasure who are also selling tickets to the Forbidden City. I have also bought it. There are several benefits: 1. All tickets are all-day, regardless of the morning and afternoon, they can be used all day; 2. The seller of a treasure will give the Palace Museum The electronic explanation is very convenient; 3, a ticket for a treasure will be a few dollars cheaper than the official website of the Palace Museum, and occasionally there are vouchers; share the conscience store I bought before!
