"Join the queue to see Mao's..." Beijing Off The Beaten Path Tip by zubric

Beijing Off The Beaten Path: 276 reviews and 427 photos

Join the queue to see Mao's Mausoleum. You shuffle through and pay homage to the wax-like body of Mao Tse Tung in respose. This great man of the people, stalwart of the communist ideal would be mortified if he knew that the first thing you see as you exit his tomb is the grinning face of Col. Sanders adorned above the world's biggest KFC store opposite Tianemen Square.
