The Palace Museum in Beijing, also known as the Forbidden City, will expand online sales of tickets on a trial basis in July.
The trial will run from July to October to test the feasibility of online sales of tickets of all dates, meanwhile tourists can also buy tickets at the entrance, according to the museum.
Currently, tourists can only book tickets online in advance, while they have to buy paper tickets at the entrances if they want to visit immediately.
