What people are saying:

Tiananmen Square is one of the most beautiful sights I've visited to date. There were quite a number of people there but it somehow contributed to the sight's interesting aesthetic. Definitely a great spot for some amazing photos as well. If you're visiting during the holidays don't be discouraged, it can still make for a great visit.
