Getting to Know China’s Great Forbidden City in Brief

The iconic Palace that now has became one of the most popular tourist destinations in China boasted over 15 millions visitors annually. A number that seemed to only rise; as in 2016 and 2017, the number of visitors amounted to 16 millions. A lot of people toured to China with a visit to the Forbidden City as the main itinerary, or even its sole purpose. This sparks little wonder, as the impressive palace complex is evidently the largest surviving palace complex in the world, and it houses the last of emperors and empire reigns in China.

Getting to know China's great forbidden city

The Chinese characters is read as “Zijin Cheng”, which literally means “Purple Forbidden City”. It’s home to 24 emperors before China became a Republic as we know now. Every inch of the palace complex is a testament to culture and ancient heritage. The Forbidden City is undoubtedly the largest palace complex in the world, comprised of approximately 74 hectares and rectangular in shape. The Forbidden Palace was the center of China’s political and governmental scene for half a thousand years.

Today, the Forbidden City is known simply as the “Palace Museum” in English. The locals refer to the Forbidden City as “Gugong”, which translates to “Former Palace”. The palace complex is located North of the Tiananmen Square, and a ticket needs to be bought in advance or on the spot before entering the establishment. The Forbidden City is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection in the world that preserved ancient wooden structures.

The Palace got its name “Forbidden” because of the simple fact that no one could enter, nor leave the palace without the emperor’s permission. This includes even the imperial families, with the exception of the Emperor himself.

The Forbidden Palace was home to the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty; the two last ruling Chinese Dynasties. The palace was built during the reign of Emperor Chengzu of Ming Dynasty, in which construction began in the year of 1406. The construction of the Forbidden City took approximately 14 years to complete. It’s been said that over 1 million workers constructed the place. The Ming Dynasty ruled for 276 years from 1368 to 1644. Ming Dynasty is the last of Han Chinese to rule over China before it was taken over by the Qing Dynasty.

Qing Dynasty ruled for almost three centuries, where the Dynasty reached its golden era during Emperor Qianlong reign. Qing Dynasty was the last empire to rule China proper, from 1644 to 1912, before the establishment of the Republic of China. Qing Dynasty is also largely characterized by its many conquest, notably by Qianlong. The Qing Dynasty has largely shaped the territorial base of what is known as today’s modern China. The Qing Dynasty is also known to be multicultural, with Manchurians, a Chinese minority as the ruling clans, Mongolians, Tibetans, and Chinese Han, that comprises most of Chinese population. A lot of the Forbidden City’s treasures are from Qianlong era, when arts, poetry, and many kinds of literary works thrived and prospered.

What Can You Cut From Your Daily Expenses for Travel

Observe how you use your money. Note down your expenses. Don’t try to limit your spending first thing. Just start by keeping track of your finance. If you’ve been doing this for awhile, good. Realizing is the very first step you can do for yourself that will benefit you in the long run.

Cut daily expenses for travel

Knowing what you’re spending on is extremely important, as everyone is different and no two people’s spending is the same. Just having a vague idea won’t help.

You need to have a clear idea and have those ideas poured into an actual form that you can always go back to. Be aware of your financial behavior.

Really can’t stress enough the importance of realizing your financial state first and foremost. More than just your income and the general idea of your spending.

Have a clearer detail, it’ll help you better. From then on, you’ll have a much clearer idea on where you can cut

Less eating out

This one is an obvious step, one that you’ve probably heard a million times on other articles already. There’s a reason people are keep talking about how eating out less can greatly reduce your spending. Eating out can seriously skyrockets your expenses by a significant amount, compared to when you don’t. However, there’s the fact that eating out is more than just that.

It’s largely a social activity. Meeting people over lunches or dinners is simply commonplace, and cutting that out altogether from your life is basically nigh on impossible, and not to mention, impractical. So, how can you go about this?

You can change your usual cafe for a meeting at your place instead. Cook for your friends. Better yet, have a cooking session together—ask your friend how to cook if you don’t consider yourself savvy.

Not only it will be an excellent bonding activity for those involved, it’s also highly economic.

Being cooped up at your home simply won’t do your health any good, though. So when you you need to get outside, make sure to bring your lunch with you.

Meet up with your friends at public spaces such as parks. Again, make sure to bring your lunch, or at least, bring some snacks with you.

Shop smarter

Shopping is everyone’s favorite past time, no matter the gender, or lack thereof. Splurging hundreds of dollars in one night is just so easy.

So why won’t anyone do it? Downsize your spending on shopping instead of trying to eliminate it altogether. Shop at secondhand clothes.

Snatch deals on online sales, and don’t be embarrassed to use your coupons.

Less coffee

Cut on the fancy coffee drinks. The $5 bill you spend each time adds up very quickly. Yes, coffee shops are more of a place to hangout and socialize. This would be a bit difficult if you frequent coffee shops to work or to study.

Instead of aiming to omit coffee shops from your routine altogether, you can downsize your spending. Order black coffee instead of a latte. Over time, the difference is huge as it accumulates.

Things to Do before Leaving Home for Travelling

What you need to do before travelling?

 

Your holiday is stress reliever. However, don’t make it sounds like you are dodging a bullet. Instead of using vacation as a way to run out of responsibility, it is better to finish your task properly at work before taking vacation. Travelling while having pile of works waiting for you when you get home will not make it as stress reliever. You will feel restless during travel because you keep remembering your unfinished works. Thus, make sure you finish your works before taking vacation to avoid more hassle when you’re back later.

 

Next thing to do is booking all necessities such as flight, hotel, car rental, etc. From some studies, it shows that the best time to book flight for vacation is 3 months prior. At that time, you likely have more opportunities for cheaper price. Aside from getting lower price, booking early helps you to ease your mind before travelling because you will likely be panic to do it in a rush.

Next, you need to make sure every document you need is prepared especially when you are travelling overseas. Check your passport’s expiration dates as well. Aside from passport, make sure that you also prepare other necessary documents. It is recommended that you make copy of them just in case you need them while travelling.

 

Research more about your destination and find out the do’s and don’ts. For example, there are some countries which require you to get shot from certain vaccine before visiting. This is very important because you don’t want to get caught some diseases during or after travel. If you travel with your family, make sure all members are up to date on their shots as well, especially children who are prone to diseases.

 

Plan your itinerary thoroughly to set up all our necessities such as hotel, transport, and everything in details. Some people say that spontaneous travelling is more fun to do instead of thoroughly prepared one. However, travelling with family requires you to be prepared in details because you have more responsibilities to make sure everything will be fine.

 

Make sure that you leave home safe before travelling. For example, you can ask your neighbor to monitor your house when you’re away. You can also pay all bills before leaving so that you don’t have to do it while travelling. Make sure that your other families know when you are going to travel for emergencies.
