The entrance to the Forbidden City eluded us. Was it really that hard to find it? Probably not, but we were in denial that the super-extra-long line that we’d seen in Tiananmen Square led into the Forbidden City. For some reason, it just didn’t make sense. So we wandered around the outer walls of the Forbidden City for over an hour before giving up. As it turns out, there were lots of interesting things to see out there.
In the following videos, we attempted to find the entrance to the Forbidden City, circumambulating the outer walls of the complex where we saw all kinds of cool thing.
In these videos, taken on a different day, we actually go through the entrance and get into the Forbidden City.
