    super crowded, which dampened the experience. But overall should go
  • Danielle Ciara 21 May 2018
    Amazing place, slightly repetitive, but still amazing. Easy entrance with the ticket from Klook too
  • CHOON KEONG 19 May 2018
    Will highly recommend to book in advance due to the crowd, especially during peak season. Only need to provide your passport details during online purchase. Just proceed to the entrance on the actual day with passports and voucher. Not require to exchange for actual tickets as indicated on the voucher. Do note that the price only covers the forbidden City entrance, and not the 2 other attractions located inside the forbidden City.
  • WAN YI 16 May 2018
    Do not require to redeem any ticket, just proceed to entrance with booking and they will merely check your passport for entry.
  • Wan Ling 16 May 2018
    Ticket was quick and easy to redeem by just flashing it to the entrance staff. They did not check if my ticket was for morning entry or afternoon entry.
  • Wei Chian Timothy 16 May 2018
    Ticket collection is very easy. We just showed our passports at the ticket entry point. No need to exchange any physical tickets. Thanks klook for the convenient and fast way of entering. Extremely crowded even when going in early.
  • Chean Fei 16 May 2018

No need to go to the 'comprehensive service window' shown in the voucher. No need to exchange the voucher for the ticket. The voucher itself is a ticket. Thanks klook!
