Tiananmen Square

When imagining what Tiananmen Square is like, think less of it as a city square, more as an enormous, vast emptiness, bordered at its extremes by some of the most iconic images and buildings in China. There are no bustling cafés and tacky souvenir shops - Tiananmen Square has not adapted to cater for its tourist popularity.

At 400,000 square metres, Tiananmen Square is the world's largest public square and is a must-see for all Beijing visitors, although it is the famous buildings and monuments that surround the square which really makes a visit worthwhile.

The square itself is actually otherwise rather ugly, but it was here that Chairman Mao declared the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Mao's remains (or possibly a waxwork) can be seen in his mausoleum on Tiananmen Square.

'Tiananmen' means 'Gate of the Heavenly Peace', and the incredible public space acts as the gateway to the Forbidden City. A huge portrait of Mao Zedong hangs at Tiananmen Gate - it is repainted through the year to account for the effects of weathering, environmental conditions and pollution.

Beijing to Tibet - 'Across the Roof of the World'
Mr D Holdstock
“The was a great experience not a lot of down time. The high altitude did hit one or two of us. I would recommend this tour for its historic and geographical interest.
