    Mao Zedong mausoleum entry is so symbolic and wonderful... massive security line to get inside, but plenty of space to wander around once in!! Easy to cross the street to actual square, via tunnels

    Tiananmen Square is may be the world’s ugliest and most forbidding public space. There is nowhere here to even get a cup of coffee, and your every move will be recorded by a forest of CCTV cameras.
