For many locals, they were incensed by the U.S. chain's opening in the ancient home of China's emperors as an act of American economic and cultural domination in one of their proudest national monuments.
To weary tourists visiting the Palace Museum, Starbucks' tiny store amid the sprawling majesty of the imperial-era Forbidden City is a welcome chance to rest with a frothy latte.
