    Hungry after touring the Forbidden City? Across Tiananmen Square are two great restaurants: Capital M for Aussie-western food and Lost Heaven for creative Yunnan cuisine. Ignore the touts outside!

    Out of the three cities I am forbidden to enter, this is not one of them.

    Don't go to the hall of drums. It's a hallway with 10 slightly rounded rocks. Worst museum exhibit ever.

    Built during the Ming Dynasty, the Forbidden City's crimson pavilions will take a couple of hours to walk around at least. Climb up the hill at Jingshan Park for a good view of the city.

    Be prepared to walk around and train your stamina. Done that during summer and it was horror and exhausted after that.
