Beijing|| the forbidden city

Upon our return from Beijing & visiting the Palace Museum [Forbidden City], we were inspired to watch the movie The Last Emperor, for walking in the footsteps of such incredible history, including that of Pu Yi, was mind-boggling. The movie helped give some reality to what life inside the walls would have been like. To be surrounded by such beauty in the architecture, lavish interior design & gardens, yet to exist only within the walls of the Palace, an unfathomable experience. It is by all means worth your time to explore, & it will leave you with long lasting memories.

I am always blown away visiting places that I fondly recall studying in History class. I had great teachers that knew how to tell a good story, and stories that have stuck with me for a long time. So physically seeing what we had to use our imagination to visualize – always warms my heart.

    One of the most interesting things about the forbidden city is the fact that all of the treasures are in the national palace museum in taiwan… If you ever get a chance you should go there- some of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen in a museum

    “The Last Emperor” is one of my all time favorite movies – and it is true there is something beautiful and fascinating to walk in the footsteps of history. I spent over half a day in the Forbidden City when I visited. Great photos to boot :)
