... Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing
dynasty. The Forbidden City was the home
of emperors and their households for 500 years.
Built in 1406, it has 9,999 rooms and is surrounded by a huge wall and a
moat. Mandy told us lots of stories about the women (in excess of 3000 of them available at the Emperor’s beck and call) being the subservient species and not being allowed to walk through the ...

My dad had very kindly emptied his foreign piggy bank of all the ...
A great day at The Great Wall - one of the new seven wonders of the world. amazing and, Zoe, some of us walked further than others - 3 guesses!! We did the Cultural museum of beijing first thing by our special request, which impressed our guide we even knew about it (well done to Bill on his pre planning). We only did two main floors which gave a good history of China on one wall and opposite what was happening in the western world at a similar time. And the ...
