    Last year,my mother and I went to the Tiananmen Square. First of all, We visited Tiananmen Gate Tower. Tiananmen Gate Tower was an ancient building with Chinese characteristics. I felt very shocked. Standing on the Tiananmen Gate Tower, we can see the vast Tiananmen Square. There are five places in the Tiananmen Square. They are the five-star red flag, the Great Hall of the People, the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall, the National Museum and the Monument to the People's Heroes.Five-star red flag will rise with the rising of the sun and fall with the setting of the sun every day. Flag-raising ceremony is a must-see spot in Tiananmen Square. The Great Hall of the People is the place where the People's Congress is held in China. Mao Zedong Memorial Hall is a place to honor and commemorate Mao Zedong .Mao Zedong has made great contributions to China, so I admire him most. The Monument to the People's Heroes stands in the center of the square. We commemorate the heroes who died for the liberation of the motherland.When I got home, I kept thinking about the pictures.

    Is it such a great place to visit in Beijing, especially watching the flag raising and flag lowering make you have higher respect for China. The flag raising early in the morning and flag lowering in the afternoon are such a must-activity to experience when in Tiananmen.

    There are plenty of activities and places to see inside and outside this venue. The many building inside and the old trees give it a unique walking experience. In the evening the flag ceremony at sunset is also observed by tourists.

    The scenic environment is very good. The tulip blossoms in Zhongshan Park. The tulip blossom season is the best time in April and May every year. It's very beautiful and I like it very much. The restaurant over there is also very good. I like it better. Friends who come to Beijing and don't know where to play can go to Tiananmen to play, especially the recommended scenic spots.

    When I was in primary school, I learned an article "I love Tian'anmen in Beijing" and sang a song: I love Tian'anmen in Beijing, the sun rises on Tian'anmen, Chairman Mao, the great leader, guiding us forward... I have a yearning for Tian'anmen. Last August, I stood in the broad Tian'anmen Square in person, feeling irresistible excitement. Although it was already noon when we arrived at Tian'anmen Square, we missed the flag raising and went to the Forbidden City to visit Chairman Mao's Memorial Hall, leaving regret. But when we stroll around the square, the Great Hall of the People, the Monument to the People's Heroes, the National Museum, the Tian'anmen Tower and the endless flow of Chang'an Street are so close, we are very happy. It is suggested that tours to Tian'anmen Square should be planned well. First, booking tickets for the Forbidden City, going early, watching the flag raising ceremony, then going to Chairman Mao's Memorial Hall, then to the Forbidden City, after touring the Forbidden City, then to Tian'anmen Square.

    From April 1st to October 31st, the opening time of Beijing Palace Museum will be: 8:30 stop time (including clock and treasure hall): 16:00 stop time: 16:10 clear time: 17:00 start selling tickets from November 1st to March 31st next year using Beijing Palace Museum off-season open time. Open admission time: 8:30 ticket stop time (including clock and treasure hall): 15:30 stop admission time: - - 15:40 clearance time: - - 16:30 in case of major events or special circumstances, if the opening time changes, the Beijing Palace Museum website will issue a special announcement. I think the Palace Museum is still worth visiting. Let yourself be the owner of the Forbidden City once. But I'm tired of walking, so I must wear a pair of comfortable shoes. It's magnificent and gorgeous here. Now it's only about 50 [%]. It will be open to about 80 [% in 16 years. When you look at it again, you can see that many scenes of TV plays are picked up there. However, you are still free to go now, and you must be there for a day: you must get up early in the morning, in fact, play is also a vigorous, if you are outside Beijing to play, give you some suggestions. Among the famous scenic spots in Beijing, the Tian'anmen area is the most crowded area during the National Day. The metro stations must not stop. It is necessary to go a long way in the past and arrange security checks for half a day. Moreover, there will be so many people in the Palace Museum that you can't stroll well at all. Jinshui Bridge will only be allowed to enter and leave (one-way trip). The easiest traffic jam is the Badaling Expressway. So if you can come to Beijing two days before the official start of the National Day holidays (see Title No. 29-7), you can grab the time to visit Tiananmen, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall before the official start of the National Day holidays, and people will be a little less. Of course, it would have been better if you had been there before (my family had been there before and didn't want to go any more, so luckily they escaped). Be careful not to go to Tian'anmen Gate on October 1st. If the flag is not raised in the middle of the night, you can hardly see anything. If you go to the Great Wall, it is suggested to take a direct train to Beijing North Railway Station. The tickets are cheap, fast, and there is no traffic jam. Come back earlier. It's better to go in the morning and return at noon. There will be a lot of people coming back in the afternoon. There will be a long queue for tickets. These two points are far away and take a long time, preferably two days.

    Starting from the Great Northeast one night, the next day, in order to see the national flag raised, we arrived at the entrance guard of the square at 3:00 a.m. In Beijing in the early morning, few people were seen on the road. Through the security check of Tian'anmen Square, a soldier stood on guard every other time. He stood upright and motionless. From 3:00 to 5:00 at the entrance guard, some policemen came to open the door guard and put people in Tian'anmen Square. Because there was an old man, who was asked to go first by the policeman, and no one else could walk in front of him before crossing the road. After crossing the road, the policeman signaled that we could go quickly. After all, I stood for two hours and my legs were stiff, but I could only run as fast as I could. Finally, I caught up with the first row, and tried not to be squeezed into the second row. It was getting light and the lights went out. Early in the morning, at 5:35, the honor guard of the three armies came out, and I could hear their neat footsteps clearly. I'm very excited. With the loud national anthem, watching the national flag rising, I deeply feel that the toss this time, really worth it! After watching the flag-raising and looking back, I found that there were so many people in the square wearing the front door to take the bus, went to Niu Street to have a Muslim breakfast, and went back to the museum after the security check!

    For the first time, I took my father and mother to travel freely. When I arrived in Beijing, I was still a little scared. I was afraid that I could not find a place to run around with Ciba Ma. Then I found a group for a day, which was not bad. The happiest thing is that my mother keeps looking for pictures with foreigners and keeps asking me to take pictures for her. It's embarrassing. But I'm happy to see them happy, and I'm happy to see them come to a successful conclusion. Love your Mom, Mom and Daddy
