I would love to visit the forbidden city one day, all the photographs I've seen look wonderful.
Thanks for visiting earlier, have a great Wednesday.

China is one of the country that I like to visit. Though for sure every place is over crowded but their old structures are worth to see. Happy weekend!

ABC Wednesday~O

I'd love to go there. I love the rust colored wall on this building.

Roger Owen Green said...

I'd go theere too. Guess I should bring reading material for the wait.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

I hope your tour of the Forbidden City was great despite the great number of people there. Sometimes crowd can dampen the spirit.

Rebecca said...

Lots of people for sure. Love the architecture in the background.

Wonderful photo - I'd love to visit there.

There are a lot of people in that photo, but I'm wondering if, for China, that isn't just a few? I had imagined that the popular places and cities in China would be even more crowded than that!

No need to go so far away, here in Singapore I already feel the squeeze. Everywhere is jam-packed with people, especially the weekends!

@dragonfly && manangkim It is indeed a beauty! And I'm learning so much about China's history...

@LilyHydrangea They have been restoring some parts of it.. I agree the rusty old feel of the wall makes it look more authentic!

@RogerOwenGreen There is absolutely no time for one to wait! :O It's one long walk! ...Kind of like walking along with the crowd.. until you reach the open areas.

@SymphoneofLove it is definitely hard to take a decent photo with so many people around.

@Rebecca && TumbleWords thank you.:D

@Jay I guess I shall have to post another photo of it from another angle! :) This photo was taken from the sides.

@Jama that is very true! Warm weather+lots of people=suffocating~~
