Location: forbbiden city, China

Maptoday i went to the Fobbiden city and it is amazing. I spent most of the day just walking around taking poictures and thinking how incredible it was that at one point regular folks were not allowed in.
There is even a starbucks coffee house inside! Not only that they have a olympic games shop as well. It was interesting to move away from the main section of the city as they are lots or streets leading to smaller rooms and exhibitions.
Well worth the 40 yuan to get in although my feet were sore by the time i had finished.
There are sections of the city which are being restored which is quite odd as on the one hand there are building which are centuries onld and tyhen there were areas with scaffolding!
