Flying Over the Forbidden City


The Forbidden City in Beijing takes hours to walk through, and even then you don’t see everything. The gigantic city in a city is filled with ornate buildings and dozens of courtyards — all photo worthy and all over-the-top in design.

You could probably say that there is too much to see at The Forbidden City in Beijing. Luckily, however, we discovered a super easy way to see the entire thing in just around 2 minutes: by air!

Take a look at our flying over the Forbidden City adventure:

Pat says the last photo is the pinnacle of great acting on his part. Nothing quite like 4 adults, Chinese costumes and a green screen to build a great memory. Oh, and there’s even a video!

        Haha! I took the title of the post literally, and was therefore perplexed by what I saw. I couldn’t make out faces on my little phone screen, so I was thinking, “Does Brooke realize some people in Chinese costumes photo-bombed her sweet aerial photos?!” 😉
