天安门！Maybe this is most famous place in Beijing, even men who have never been in China heard about this square.
A short note for travellers who planing to go there after covid-19 outbreak. Well, now you can't just arrive and roam everywhere. The iron fences and guards surrounded the area, the only one way in exists and you have to stand in the line. I spent more than one hour waiting for my turn get in. There is a restrictions for number of people entering the area, so the police making it slow. Be patient and plan your time well.

Beijing is the perfect mix of old and new. It was really amazing to see breath-taking historical sites like the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square and then being able to take a few metro stops to go to The Nest and see where the Olympics were held all while enjoying the groups of locals getting together to do their nightly dance exercises. #wintergetaway
