A video walk through Beijing’s Forbidden City

During the China 2.0 tech tour, our group had a chance to spend a little time inside the famous Forbidden City in Beijing.

Using my trusty Flip pocket video camera, I tried to capture a sense of the grandeur and enormity of the place (while grossly over-using the words “elaborate,” “enormous” and the phrase “pollution, unfortunately.”) Sorry about the lapse in my mental thesaurus.

I think you’ll be equally impressed with this fantastic cultural heritage destination (and if this whets your appetite, don’t miss a visit to the virtual Forbidden City – here’s a video about what it’s like to see it while inside the real thing.)

For those who can’t see the embedded video box below, here is the direct link to the video on YouTube.
