This makes the Forbidden City one of the most important monuments left over from China’s imperial era. Golden lions, red walls and characteristic Chinese roofs form the backdrop to Beijing’s main attraction. Also unique are the historic hutongs, walled neighbourhoods with narrow streets and small houses clustered around courtyards.
