Qian Mem - Arrow Tower - Zheng yang men, Beijing: 26 reviews and 57 photos
We arrived in the early morning in Beijing. After the check-in in the hotel, we were totally ready to discover Beijing.
With my city map in the hand I started walking in the direction of Beijing Highlight Number 1: Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
But soon I found out that in Beijing all distance seemed bigger than they looked on the map. So I had already walked about half an hour, and I was still far from my destination. So I decided to go to the nearest Metro station to continue my journey. Like this I arrived at the Tiananmen Square a few minutes later.
When I left the Metro building at Tiananmen Square, the Qianmen was the first "Chinese building" I did see.
This Qianmen is in fact a double gate. On the picture you can see the southern gate, the Front gate also known as the Arrow Tower.
Address: Qianmen Dogdajie
Directions: South Side of Tiananmen Square
