Wishlisted by Lemi
Walk in the footsteps of nobility in the Imperial Garden (御花园, Yu Hua Yuan). Its 400-year old trees have kept shade over the Emperor’s personal retreat where pavilions, sculptures, and rock features have provided a tranquil oasis. The garden has withstood centuries-worth of changing seasons and outlived even the Palace residents. Indulge in some post-tour musing with the picturesque flora as your backdrop. The Imperial Garden is the northmost point of the Central Axis and the last stop within the Forbidden City. Circle back to any points you want to explore further or exit by Gate of Divine Prowess (神武門, Shenwu Men)!
