Foreigners DO NOT need to buy tickets online

  • There's been a rules change October 2017 that required all CHINESE citizens to buy tickets online to the Forbidden City
  • But this rule does not apply to foreign citizens. Foreign travelers can still buy tickets in person at the entrance to the Forbidden City
  • Go early to avoid crowds
  • You'll need to bring your passport with you to buy tickets. They do accept major credit card (not AMEX though)
