  • pity that the palace does not open until noon ... you arrive at 15:15, and 3 hours waiting ... lots of Chinese bands.. 3 hours waiting ... Inside a Chinese group every minute ... unbearable

  • If you come before 12 and in September), the queue is not a big one to the palace, but to learn more - a tour on an electric car
