Come to Tian-An-Men tonight!!


Tian-An-Men at Night
Originally uploaded by Jeff Wang.

Located in the heart of Beijing, Tian'anmen Square is the largest one of its kind in the world, 880m from south to north, and 500m from east to west, with a total area of 440,000 sqm.

Along the central line at the north end of the square stands the resplendent and magnificent Tian'anmen Rostrum; in the center of the square is Monument to the People's Heroes; to the south of the Monument is Chairman Mao Memorial Hall; and to the further south are the Front Gate and Arrow Tower.

In the morning, the grand flag-raising ceremony is held, and at nightfall, the flag lowering ceremony is conducted at Tian'anmen Square. The flag-raising ceremony has become the most attractive and sacred ceremony in Tian'anmen Square, as well as typical sight in Beijing.

I would love to pay a visit to Beijing, China, hopefully, my company will send me for a fam trip, my following posts will be on this subject Beijing and am doing some research on it...
