Tiananmen Square

October-November 2008
Tiananmen Square — is really very large. But despite crowds of tourists it still looks rather deserted. In order to accentuate its size, along its Northern side from the East and West the Chinese made subway stations Tiananmen East and Tiananmen West. So if you are lazy to walk, you can always go one station on a subway.

On the square there «graze» some «students» who'll definitely say hello to a tourist and start to invite to take tea or see pictures. Don't go.

There is a Qianmen Gate (Front gate) behind the Mao Zedong mausoleum from the right side.
