"Tianamen Square" Tiananmen Square Tip by Green_Frog

Tiananmen Square, Beijing: 161 reviews and 320 photos


It's big... big... big!!!! When we visited Tianamen Square there was a lot of security, so be patient as there appears to be thousands of people all wanting to visit this amazing place and all bags, backpacks etc had to be put through the security checkpoints and some of the visitors had to be frisqued this appeared to be random selections. Best part of this visit - it's FREE !!!!

Allow1 hour – flag raising ceremony – every morning around 6am in front of Gate and at sunset.

Subway Line 1 - get off at Tiananmen East or Tiananmen West Station
Subway Line 2 - get off at Qianmen Station and walk north

Directions: In the very centre of Beijing
