So you want to go to the Forbidden City? We don't blame you, it's a must do when you're in Beijing! 247tickets works with the venue so you can purchase tickets on our site. Here's how it works:

  • Choose your date (24 hours in advance) on the attraction page (
  • On the payment page, input the passport number, name and phone number of every person you're buying tickets for
  • Here you can also add tickets to the Treasure Gallery and/or Hall of Clocks for RMB 10 per ticket
  • Make your payment using one of our payment options
  • Once we have the booking we need to confirm it with the venue (hence the 24 hour confirmation)
  • Next, you will receive an email from us confirming the booking within 24 hours (probably earlier!)
  • On the day you booked your tickets for, head to the “Comprehensive Service Window” which is located at the east side of the ticket booth
  • Show the passports that you booked with to one of the friendly people at the desk who will in return issue with paper tickets to show at the entrance!

A note: Unfortunately we don't share a live feed with the venue, and sometimes tickets sell out before we can update the page. Please await our confirmation before heading to the venue. If your tickets are unavailable we will let you know as soon as possible.
