Tiananmen Square, Beijing: 30 reviews and 30 photos


Favorite thing: Tiananmen Square -- the heart of the city. Major rallies were held here during the Cultural Revolution when the then Chairman Mao attended parades of up to 1,000,000 people. And in 1989, huge army tanks and soldiers squashed pro-democracy demonstrators here; the result that followed was tragic.
