1.What is the length of walking and how long des it take?2. Is it possible to see only part of the forbidden city and come out

Hi Indrajit,

   Thank you for your inquiry. Usually, it takes about 2 hours to visit the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City covers an area of about 72 hectares (178 acres) with a total floor space of approximately 150,000 square meters (1,600,000 square feet). It consists of 90 palaces and courtyards, 980 buildings and 8,704 rooms. So it is impossible to visit the whole Forbidden City. The most popular places are the entrance-Tian’an men Square(天安门广场)the Outer Court(including the Hall of Supreme Harmony 太和殿, the Hall of Central Harmony 中和殿and the Hall of Preserving Harmony 保和殿)the Inner Court(includin gthe Palace of Heavenly Peace乾清宫, the Palace of Union and Peace 交泰殿and the Palace of Terrestrial Tranquility 坤宁宫) and the Imperial Garden(御花园).

Of course, you can see only a part of the Forbidden city and come out, but please note that if you want to enter the Forbidden city again, you have to pay the entrance ticket again.
