    Lots of security so pay attention to to signs and be prepared to wait in lines.

    It wasn't too crowded. Let's just say it was good enough to take pictures without being photobombed by other tourists 😂.

    I have been here for a few times. But never seen the flag raising ceremony! It is about 7:00 am everyday, but my flight is 7:40am . What a pity!

    Very historic, and educational. Great photo opps. of the square, the buildings and monuments. If you like history this is a must see. Great place to meet and interact with people from China.

    Probably the biggest square in the world. Security procedures and massive queues make it quite a tiring experience.

    You can feel the pressure of history on your shoulders while the Guards are shooting at you ... with their eyes.

    Pay a rickshaw 30 yuan to drive you from the end of the forbidden city back to Tiananmen Square so that you can take the subway

    So complicated to get in, extremely precautions of the police, people biting each other to get in, chaos all over. Very difficult to get in and out

    One of the world's great squares; take a minute or two in order to fully take in the atmosphere.

    Come here for the flag raising ceremony! Gets very packed, but an interesting thing to do at least once while you're here.

    During winter season, wear warm clothes. The Siberian winds are so chilly that the temp drops further since it's an open area.

    Flag goes up and down everyday and big flowers are decorated for a month after the national day. People fly kite in the morning. But anyone remember what happened here not so long ago?

    Very crowded at all times! Suggest going to Jingshan Gongyuan. Pay CNY2 for the view of the Forbidden City from a high point.

    It's a huge concrete square w/a few monuments & a giant photo of the murderous benevolent evil dictator, Chairman Mao. Historic site of the June 1989 massacre. A must see at least once. Free entry.

    Come early to see the troops raising the flag at sunrise or in the evening just before sunset to see the troops lowering the flag. Such an impressive square.
  • John 忠威 Hans D.
    One of the must see attractions of China. You can get a photo taken with Chairman Mao in the background. Be ware of hustlers

    Just before the main gate of the Forbidden City, you have to see this "memorial" place and take some classy photos. Good to know, entry of this square is totally free.

    Try to pass the image of Mao and continue until you arrive in the forbidden city... Special price for students (drivers licence can do the trick since nobody understand English !)

    For security reason, Tiananmen Square is a fenced square circled by low iron grids with main four entrances – east, west, south and north. The square is now open to the public till midnight

    Expect delays while you get your bags checked. The south entrance at Exit A in Qianmen Line 2 has the shortest queues
