"Center of Beijing" Tiananmen Square Tip by muratkorman

Tiananmen Square, Beijing: 161 reviews and 320 photos

Tiananmen Square is located just opposite Forbidden City and it is the most central point in Beijing. Every sunrise and sunset, there is a spectacular flag ceremony not to be missed. As the morning ceremony is too early, I suggest you catch the flag lowering ceremony just before sunset. You will see a big crowd waiting for the ceremony so it's better to arrive a bit earlier to find a good spot. In most hotels, you will be informed about the ceremony times in the reception. After flag lowering ceremony, the square will be evacuated and no access will be allowed. After visiting Forbidden City, you can hang around in the area to watch the ceremony. I will also put a video about the ceremony.

Address: Tiananmen Square
Directions: In the very center of Beijing
