Chinese Government Reopens Sections of Forbidden City

Sections of China's Forbidden City are becoming less forbidden as the tourist destination has to accommodate the tens of thousands of visitors per day.

The Chinese government has just completed restoration and opening of previously closed sections of the palace. The renovations have concentrated on opening the courtyards that have long remained closed and occupied by government institutions.

The China Guide, a tour operator in China, takes guests through parts of the Forbidden City that are generally passed by other groups, and the Forbidden City is one of their more popular tours.
