Step into the world of emperors and empresses with this in-app audio tour of Beijing's Forbidden City and the Royal Treasure Museum. Designed for history buffs and culture enthusiasts, the tour brings the grandeur of China's imperial past right to your ears. Embarking on this adventure, travelers will start at the Meridian Gate, the dramatic main entrance to the Forbidden City, which once dictated the rhythm of the entire empire. Moving forward, the tour unfolds the majestic Gate of Supreme Harmony, leading to the largest square inside this vast complex. Journey through the heart of the Forbidden City at the Hall of Supreme Harmony where rulers once sat on the throne, and rest at the similarly impressive, yet smaller Hall of Central Harmony. The tour's path will guide you through the opulent spaces of the emperors and empresses, from the Hall of Preserving Harmony to the Palace of Heavenly Purity and the deeply peaceful Palace of Earthly Tranquility. Not to be missed is the harmony of the Hall of Union and the resplendent Imperial Garden, a former royal family retreat. Concluding at the Gate of Divine Prowess, travelers are offered a final, stunning vantage point to look back and marvel at the entire Forbidden City.
