Tian'anmen Square, Beijing China
Tian'anmen Square, Beijing China

The heart of modern China beats in Tiananmen Square, the symbol of the People"s Republic and the center of Beijing"s landmarks. The flagstones of Tiananmen cover a staggering 440,000 square meters, enough space to allow a million people to gather there.

The Tiananmen Gate Tower sites at the north, the Five-Star Red Flag flies high on the square, the Monument to the People"s Heroes dominates the center, the Great Hall of the People and the Museum of the Chinese Revolution and the Museum of Chinese History to the east and west of it, as well as The Chairman Mao Memorial Hall and the Qianmen gate, sit in the south of the square. Over several hundred years, in front of the Tiananmen, many democracy meetings and demonstrations are held. Tens of thousands of people visit daily. The Square is listed top among Beijing"s 16 scenic spots.

Five Star Red Flag-the Chinese national flag, flies high in the sky above the Square. To see the guard of honor raise the Flag is a must for the tourist visiting Beijing City. You have to get up very early and arrive at the Square before sunrise. Only by doing so can you see the ceremony clearly as there are crowds of people attending the ceremony every day.
