Forbidden City ♦ Beijing, China  I went here so long ago. The Chinese had just opened up there country to outsiders and the forbidden city was wide open and not yet protected with lots of ropes and guards. You could basically just walk around in and out of all the rooms. Sit in the thrones, get up close to it all. Amazing. Tough trip though. nothing to buy, and horrible food.
