On November 28th a new museum in Huaxi, built on a one-to-one scale to replicate the Palace Museum (the Forbidden City) in Beijing, welcomed its first guest.

The "Palace Museum" covers 10,000 square meters. Several historic relics, such as paintings, calligraphy, ancient ceramics, embroidery, and carved jade, are displayed in the different halls of the museum, including Hall of Supreme Harmony, and Palace of Heavenly Purity.

Huaxi Village, praised as one the most beautiful villages in China, is located in the east of Jiangsu Province, Eastern China. The seven-story Huaxi Golden Pagoda is the most famous architecture in the village. A series of cultural activities will be held in Huaxi, where you can learn about Chinese history and folk culture.

If you can't get enough of the imperial heritage of the Forbidden City you're in for a treat — there is now more to see in Huaxi? Contact us to have us tailor-make your own tour of the Palace Museums and anything else that takes your fancy in China.
