On our second day at Beijing, our group were brought to visit Tiananmen Square. In simplified Chinese, Tiananmen means "The Gate of Heavenly Peace". Tiananmen Square is the largest city square in the world, with a mixture of a lofty monument, a magnificent tower, solemn halls and a great museum. It occupies an area of 440,000 square meters (about 109 acres), and able to accommodate 1,000,000 people at one time. The place is very BIG!!! I couldn't catch a picture of the whole place on my camera. So make do with separate pictures of buildings instead.
I managed to catch some pictures of important buildings around the square.
