    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.
  • Justine May 28 Feb 2019
    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!
  • 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!
  • Timofei 29 Dec 2018
    Very easy to get in. Don't need to wait in a line to redeem ticket, just show your passport at the entrance. The palace is beautiful and makes a big impression. This place is a first must to visit in Beijing.
  • YU XIANG 17 Dec 2018
    This is an amazing palace and the structures of ancient china is worth visiting when you visit Beijing. Though most of them are rebuilt and renovated, it still retain its former glory. Sunset at the exit of the Palace is a wonderful sight and for photographers, the best view to capture a sunset is at the extreme end of the exit after the river or at JingShan Park.
  • Mi Xue 28 Oct 2018
    Extremely easy to use. Just show your passport at the entrance and you would be able to enter. Best to also buy the audio guide at the beginning. Most amazing place in Beijing and spent an entire day there but still have not visited all the attractions. Will return again. The clocks and treasury tickets are not included in this one but the queue is relatively short to buy them. Worth while to go those galleries as well.
  • Benjz Gerard 23 Aug 2018
    No need to pick up tickets, just head straight to security screening and explore the Palace! Be sure to bring tons of water and snacks as choices are limited inside. If you want to experience dressing up in traditional costume, pass on here but go to Jiangshan because they rent out costumes here very cheaply!
  • Ja 28 Apr 2018
    Forbidden city was beautiful. Hall of the clocks and Hall of treasure is not included. But not enough to see everything anyways. I got there at 8:20am. I thought I was early. But there was so many people there already. It says to go to Comprehensive Service Window. It took me awhile to find the window. But no need. Your passport is your ticket once you buy tickets online. You can just go straight in just show them your passport to scan. I spend too much time looking for Comprehensive Service Window which located on the right side of the palace before check in point. I spent 8:30am-12:30pm at forbidden city. It says Beijing Palace Museum (Forbidden City). It is not Palace museum ticket. $9.5 is just entrance fee for Forbidden City.

    You don’t even need to collect a physical ticket at all, just go straight to the security counter and show them your passport and you can go straight through l, it’s that simple.
