Make sure you check out the fascinating Forbidden City on your holiday to China

The Forbidden City

In the middle of Beijing's modern hustle and bustle the Forbidden City, also known as the Palace Museum, is a place that demands to be seen.

Grand Designs fans, this one's for you. The incredible grounds, guarded by 10-metre-high walls and a 52-metre-wide moat, are full of majestic feats of architecture and gardens. Literally fit for royalty, they were also once home to the ruling dynasties of China. 

Today, you can visit and see these stunning features, which are now also full with exhibitions and collections of amazing paintings, calligraphy, ceramics and more.
