    Excellent tour! It was their holiday and peak season, full of Human! Remember to buy ur ticket ONLINE before going, otherwise u got no way to buy on the spot. The clock and jewelry museum worth to have a walk.
  • Anson 17 Apr 2019
    I'm so glad to have pre purchase the ticket via Klook and skip the queue for buying the tickets. Just proceed to the entry point with my passport and the system already indicated I have pre purchased my entrance tickets. Highly recommended for visitors to Beijing and visiting the Forbidden City is a site you cannot miss.
  • Nishel 15 Apr 2019
    Such a vast place. I walked 16000 in total that day! The entry was pretty much seamless. Although in the booking I made, I couldn't add children (they're free anyway) so their passports weren't on the system but they let us through anyway. We also went to the clock museum which was interesting. It was very busy at the Forbidden City and I would definitely recommend getting there as soon as it opens.
  • Robert Lawrence 8 Apr 2019
    this ticket is very useful for me, so I don't need to have queuing, just show the barcode and I could enter the forbidden City without any problem. if u want to travel to forbidden City without any worry, just book this ticket via klook. highly recommended.
  • Lai Som 4 Apr 2019
    Gaining entry with our voucher was fast and easy. We showed had to show our passports, visas, and vouchers in order to gain entry but it all took less than 2 minutes. You can rent an audio guide by the front gate for more information on the exhibits. The Forbidden City also known as the Museum Palace itself was great. The architecture and history were very interesting. Overall, great trip. We manage to see blossom flowers in the palace. it was awesome and beautiful.
  • Wai Tung 10 Mar 2019
    The Forbidden City is huge and definitely worth to visit. It is very hard to imagine the emperors worked and lived in such a big place which I almost got lost inside. Lots of photos points but lots of tourists at the same time.
  • Ci 2 Mar 2019
    Very easy and convenience to use. Just head to the museum entrance and let them scan the passport to enter the Palace Museum. The museum is very large and there are a lot to see. You can also rent a audio tour guide for 40RMB, I spend almost 3 hours in the museum.

    It really helped us a lot. There’s a long line in the ticketing office and I am glad we bought this ahead of time so we just went straight to the entrance and show our voucher. It was really hard because people cannot speak English that much so we don’t know what we’re going to do but we just followed the crowd and everything went well. We saw the majestic Forbidden City and it’s such a stunner. Despite the cold weather, we were still able to enjoy it!
  • CHUI YUN 24 Jan 2019
    I would highly recommend this service as it is hassle free and you will be assured the entrance for the day as I heard that there’s quota for number of visitors for the day. All you need to do is bring your passport to the entrance. Once they input your passport number it will show up on their system that you are legit ticket holder for the day. It saves my time as I didn’t need to queue up twice for the ticket purchase and entrance.
  • Ken Yik 3 Jan 2019
    Easiest way to get tickets to visit the Forbidden City / Palace Museum. Just select the intended date of visit and ensure to insert correct passport number during online purchase on Klook. On day of visit, just show passport to the staff at ticketing counter and you'll be able to enter once verified. Save the hassle to queue with crowd to buy tickets. Highly recommended!
