Tiananmen Square, Beijing: 30 reviews and 30 photos


Fondest memory: This picture-perfect postcard gives you an aerial view of TianAnmen Square. If you can drag yourself out of bed (yes, DRAG!) before sunrise, you can actually catch the flag raising ceremony here at the crack of dawn, performed by PLA solders taught to march at a precised timing of 108 paces per minute, 75 cm per pace!!!!!! You can also watch the SAME ceremony - done in reverse order - at sunset. However you will probably melt in the throngs and throngs of people gathered here in the evenings. And you can't get a good view of the ceremony!!!!!!
