Burness Corner: The Forbidden City

My erstwhile travel companion from September 2011 to April 2012 gives his views upon the Wonders we visited. Today, Beijing's Forbidden City.



Interview

Had you heard of the Forbidden City before travelling?


Yes, I’d certainly heard of it, but didn’t know much about it.

What were your expectations?

Fairly high, probably due to its intriguing name.

What was your first impression?

Not amazing, it didn’t blow you away by any means, not very unique, or big enough to make an impact.

What did you like most about the Forbidden City?

The audio guides.

What didn't you like about the Forbidden City?

Most of it, it was rather dull. Lots and lots of traditional Chinese architecture with nothing particularly spectacular or massive, apart from maybe the quantity of similar looking buildings. 

Would you regard the Forbidden City as a World Wonder?

No danger.
