|No more smoke, lighters and matches in the Forbidden City!|
|Aug 14, 2013 22:20|
|Since this May, smoking has been forbidden in the Forbidden City. Tourists who smoke in the Forbidden City will be dissuaded. If the staff smoke, their bonus will be deducted. |
Yesterday, the Forbidden City annouced that lighters and matches will be forbidden to be taken into the Forbidden City from August 14, 2013. If the lighters are important to the visitors, they can deposit their lighters before they pass the ticket barriers. The staff will bring the visitors' lighters to the Gate of Divine Prowess so that the visitors can get their lighters back after they finish touring the Forbidden City. If the visitors don't listen to the staff and want to bring their lighters in, they will be sent to the police station directly.
The aim is to prevent the hidden danger of fire.
