    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.

    I watched "the Gate of Heavenly Peace documentary" several times with regret, at last I was here with delight, spotting the history.

    in 1989 here is the center of world's attention, exactly the same thing did happened 23 years later on Tahrir Square, Egypt. PEOPLE vs POWER

    The Chairman Mao Memorial Hall is open Tuesday-Sunday, 6:00am-12:00pm. Get there early! Also, purchasing flowers from the vendors at the entrance to place on Mao’s tomb is pretty much mandatory.

    Need I say more? If you can get here early enough before the sun rises, you can witness the flag-raising ceremony
