The website is fake and the officials at the gate refused to recognise my passport number which was provided at the time of online booking. Due to this, I had to buy tickets again at the gate.

Good website, best price online. Easy access via your passport. Very reliable and easy! And a visit of the Forbidden city is a must for every Beijing- vistor anyway.
