For us it was very simple. We reserved the tickets and so we were able to skip the line. Nothing more but perfect for us to enjoy this experience.

Don't be overwhelmed by the masses of humanity at the entrance. Once you get deeper into the palace ,it is so immense that you can can wander around and get away from the crowds. To call this complex grand is an understatement. It dwarfs Versailles. The treasures displayed in the inner palaces are beautiful. I would recommend watching either The Story of Yenxi Palace or Empresses in the Palace before visiting. It will give you a better appreciation of life in the palace and the back alleyways

If you're visiting Beijing, the Forbidden City is a must. Buying the ticket online makes you save valuable minutes on your visit, so it would be wise to purchase the admission tickets from here.

This was a must during tourist season! Followed directions...went to main ticket gate with passports and all 3 passport numbers came up under my reservation. We were in a about 2 minutes. Good thing we had booked early, they were sold out for the next few days. FYI...water bottles are about $.50 US, don’t bother lugging your own water. Just buy it cold!

The admission ticket I received through the viator was not accepted at the Forbidden City site.
It was supposed to have my passport number and the ticket I received had a random number.
Had to spend about more than an hour trying to understand what was wrong and I finally bought a new ticket for 60 yuan at the site.
