North Gate

The traditional method of touring the Forbidden City is to enter at the South Gate, but using the North Gate is much more practical if you intend to continue on to Tienanmen Square afterwards. Like several portions of the Forbidden City, the North Gate spent much of 2007 in scaffolding undergoing refurbishment for all the Olympic tourists.
