  • 🤩This stunning photo showing the shooting stars from a meteor shower above the Meridian Gate, also known as "Wu Men" of the Forbidden City was released on Sunday. 🌠The mesmerizing celestial spectacle has further added an aura of sublimity and majesty to the ancient palace. A Geminids meteor shower lit up the sky in many places across China from the night of December 13 to the early morning on Friday. #shootingstars #beauty #stunning #naturephotography #china #forbiddencity

  • Forbidden City in Beijing, China Photo credit: @dominicjyeo . The Forbidden City is a palace complex in central Beijing, China. The former Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty, it now houses the Palace Museum. Constructed in 1420, during the early Ming Dynasty, the Forbidden City is China's best-preserved imperial palace, and the world's largest collection of well-preserved medieval wooden structures. It served as the home of 24 emperors and their households - 14 of the Ming dynasty and 10 of the Qing dynasty - as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for almost 500 years. Ringed by 3.5 km ( 2.2 mi) of scarlet citadel walls, the 72 hectares (over 180 acres) compound has more than 90 palace quarters and courtyards, 980 buildings and 8,886 rooms. A common myth states that there are 9,999 rooms, but it is not supported by survey evidence. Originally called the "Purple Forbidden City" 紫禁城 (ancient Chinese astronomers believed that the Purple Star (Polaris) was in the center of heaven and the Heavenly Emperor lived in the Purple Palace; the Palace for the emperor on earth was so called the Purple City, and it was forbidden to enter without special permission of the emperor, hence its name "Purple Forbidden City"), it is now usually called the "Former Palace" 故宫. The Forbidden City was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987 in recognition of its importance as the centre of Chinese power for five centuries, as well as for its unparalleled architecture and its current role as the Palace Museum of dynastic art and history.

  • ⛩ Forbidden City📍 Beijing, China Nothing like a peaceful morning walk around the world’s largest imperial palace to start up your day! Forbidden City is not only an incredibly well-preserved heritage site, it is also one of the most beautiful historic monuments you will ever see. There are no trees in the Outer Court so you can get a clear and uninterrupted view of the breathtaking details and astounding architecture. (But more importantly, the lack of vegetation gives little to no places for assassins to hide!🌳👀) It homed 24 emperors from two dynasties in its time. Construction began allllll the way back in 1406 and was completed in 1420! Forbidden City, we don’t think you look a day over 500 😘. 📷: @rachelmeetschina . . .

  • Birilerine benzemeye çalışmadım, herkesin eşsiz olduğuna inandım. Sırf gülmüş olmak için gülmedim ve içimden geldiğinde tutmadım, ağladım. Hiç beklemediğim şekilde kırıldı kalbim, altından kalkmakta zorlandım; bazen istemesem de ben de bazı kalpleri kırdım. En çok sevdikleri yaralarken insanı, sevenleri sarıyormuş yarasını en iyi; tecrübe ettim. Yürekten seven herkes o meşhur vakti ve imkanları yaratabiliyor, başarılarınla gurur duyup mutluluğuna içten seviniyor ve bazı şeyleri ve kimseleri sırf sen seviyorsun diye incitmiyormuş; gördüm. Kahve içmeyi sevemediğim için özür dilediğimde benim için çay içenlerle tanıştım. İstediğin deveyi atlat hendeklerden, karşındakinin anlamak istediğinin ötesine geçemiyormuşsun, bildim. Çok gördüm, çok sevdim, çok gezdim, çok dinledim. Gittikçe daha çok sustum, daha az konuştum, daha az yazdım içimden geçenleri. Daha az yazdığım için kendime kızdım. Hayatımda boşuna yer kapladığını anladığım her şeyin ve herkesin arkasından el salladım. Kendimi kötü hissettiren tüm yüklerden kurtulmayı huy edindim. Ve hep affettim. Unuttum diyorum ama aslında hatırlamamayı öğrendim. İdeallerimin hep peşinden koştum, bir şeyi yapacaksam hakkıyla yapmayı tercih ettim. Gerçekten istediğim her şeye ya kendim ulaştım ya da hayatın elde edemediğimi nasıl telafi ettiğine tanık oldum. Daha fazlası için talepkar olmadım. Zaman nasıl geçti anlamadım. 30 yıl önce dün saat 15:15’te, çok güzel bir ailenin ortanca çocuğu olarak doğdum. Normalde doğum günlerimi kutlamayı pek sevmezdim ama bu coşkuyu dünden beri gelen yüzlerce mesajın samimiyetine borçluyum. Duymayan kalmasın, dünyanın bir ucunda ben koskocaman oldum 🥳 . #china #beijing #北京 #中国 #forbiddencity #tiananmen #photography #travelphotography #instalike #photooftheday #instadaily #wanderlust #wanderlusting #goodvibes #goodvibesonly #travel #traveling #traveler #expat #expatlife #internations #wandherlusttravels #life #turkishfollowers #birthday #december #happybirthday #selfportrait #portraitphotography #happy

  • Estão acompanhando nossos stories a caminho da Tailândia?! 🙋🏽‍♀️👏🏽🏞 . . A primeira parada foi uma conexão no continente africano, na Etiópia-aeroporto de Addis Ababb . . A segunda parada foi estratégica em Pequim, na China 🇨🇳 para nossos viajantes passearem 01 dia!⛩ 🥰 . Importante informar que na China há um controle de acesso à internet e seu celular 📱pode ser bloqueado para conexões.😭 Como fazer então?! 🤗👉🏽Anota essa dica 😉📝 . 📌instale um aplicativo VPN no seu celular, ele estabelece uma conexão particular com um servidor fora da China; . 📌A maioria é gratuita e pode ser baixada em celulares andróides e IOS; . 📌Os mais conhecidos são EXPRESS VPN e o VPN Unlimited - apesar de conectar a velocidade vai oscilar bastante; . 📌 Instale o app antes de chegar na China; . . Pode acontecer do celular não funcionar com o VPN, como aconteceu com a @alinercs! Mas só um dia sem internet a gente aguenta né!

  • 🇨🇳🐉⛩ Запретный город в Пекине - крупнейший и самый таинственный дворцовый комплекс мира. Более 500 лет служивший домом 24 императорам Китая, дворец был закрыт для простых граждан. Всех, кто осмелился нарушить это правило, ждала смерть. И не смотря на то, что большая часть комплекса сегодня открыта для посетителей, история Запретного города до сих пор остается загадкой. Королевский комплекс, сравнимый по размаху с Версальским дворцом во Франции, занимает 72 га и состоит из более чем 800 зданий с 9999 комнат (во дворце Потала в Тибете - 999 комнат), общей площадью 150000 кв.м. Город окружен десятиметровой стеной и рвом с водой, который называется «Золотая вода». Место для строительства выбиралось в соответствии с фэн-шуй: с севера строение окружают горы, вход ориентирован на юг, внутри города протекает река, мягко огибающая дворцы, что по убеждениям фэн-шуй, позволяет накапливать энергию.Запретный город в самом сердце Пекина был отрезан от остального города рвами и пурпурно-красными стенами. Только император и его приближенные имели право здесь находиться, а для простых смертных эта часть Пекина была недоступна. Запретный город был центром Китайской империи, а в глазах самих китайцев - всего мира. Здесь жили, здесь правили страной вплоть до падения империи в 1911 году властители из династий Мин и Цин..» . . . #запретныйгород #запретныйгородпекин #helentravelsagain #exloretheworld #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #travelling #travelphotography #travel_drops #travels #sunny #lovetotravel #lifeistravel #lifeintravel #beijing #forbiddencity #пекин #pekin #紫禁城
