People tend to check in during these times:
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.
Best place for riding bicycle
A must when in Beijing! (Most probably) Biggest square in the world.
Super crowded place. Security check makes more crowded
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
In memory of Tian'anmen protest in 1989.
Crowded but an important piece of history. Worth the time.
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
Historical square in the center of Beijing across from the Forbidden City. I good place take photos of the National Flag and the front gate of the Forbidden City.
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.
All should remember #8964
Nice historical attraction of Beijing.
Biking around this enormous square is heaps of fun!
A long way to walk
During winter season, wear warm clothes. The Siberian winds are so chilly that the temp drops further since it's an open area.
Huge huge square & spectacular scenic views. 051214
天安门广场 Tian'anmen Square - famous monument, landmark & historic site in the World & China. Caution : Yours every step was recorded by cctv cameras & sighted in every corner of the Square. 051214
Tianmen so cool
Here I come, Tian'anmen.
Come at sunrise or sunset to see the flag ceremony.
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.
Nothing has happened here...
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.
One of the must see attractions of China. You can get a photo taken with Chairman Mao in the background. Be ware of hustlers
45 minute line to get in
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 !)
check in, just to be here.
Freedom, oh, freedom. That's just some people talking.
RIP RIP RIP RIP RIP RIP RIP RIP
frog in Beijing spring.
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
In front of the Forbidden City with the big picture of Chairman Mao hang in fromt. The best time to see this massive square is during sunrise or sunset, where troops raise/lower the flag.
Too many people
Before the Forbidden City, you'll most likely pass by this first. The best time to see this massive square is during sunrise or sunset, where troops raise/lower the flag. Entering the Square is free.
If u take public transport goin' there, u'd better taking address or map with Chinese literature ... Or u'll gonna lost for a while up there
Most of nearby museums are closed on Mondays, including the mausoleum of Mao and the forbidden city. The National museum is free of charge but bring your passport for control check.
Use the under road walk way to get over to Forbidden City
Block? What block? NYC represent!!
