What people are saying:

When you’re traveling in China, it’s best to keep at a low pace. There is so much greatness to see and experience. You need to take a little bit of time to enjoy in the moment. It doesn’t all have to be photographed. Some experiences need to be lived and felt in the present. Photography gives content. Life gives content and context. We always remember the context and like to share it too.

Additional Information


A vast majority of tourists who visit Beijing for the first time consider the Forbidden City as a place they must see. The Forbidden City, known as Gugong in Mandarin, once served as the imperial palace for 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is a symbol of ancient China. Although it is no longer China's political centre, you can still feel its former glory once you are within the courtyard and surrounded by the high walls. Its long history has left behind a large amount of precious architecture and cultural relics, making it one of the most important cultural heritage in modern China.
