Tiananmen Square


Tiananmen Square

Tiananmen Square is a must see if you find yourself in Beijing. It’s a very interesting place to visit especially in light of everything that has happened there over the years. It’s worth setting aside a few hours for exploring Tiananmen Square and the surrounding attractions.

Military personal patrol the square so be on your best behaviour and don’t get too offended if you get stared at when taking pictures, especially if you are a Westerner.

It’s a great place to sit and people watch.


I don’t think we saw any blue sky the whole time we were in Beijing.
