Avoid any long lines or printing problems with paperless skip-the-line entry to Beijing’s UNESCO-listed Forbidden City. Simply book in advance, stroll straight to check in, then show your passport to ensure hassle-free admission directly into the ancient complex and enjoy plenty of time to browse the site’s major attractions, including the Gate of Divine Prowess, Dragon Throne, and Palace Museum.

Excellent Venue for classical concerts, ballet, and opera. Easily accessible from the subway. Don't expect to get food once you enter the building.

Highly recommended for art/music performance lover, both theatre and music hall were fantastic, and the exterior look is great for photo too. Also, recommend to leave some time in the theatre shop as they have some fine souvenirs to take home.

A lovely place to visit but local people are very noisy and undisciplined.. What is a pity. Go there early in morning to avoid that

Known as the egg for its design, the center’s interior and exterior are both beautiful. Spent some time indoors for the exhibitions on the performances that have been held and it was informative. It is also a nice place to stay warm during winter.
