Largest town square in the world

Well, yes it is the largest square in the world, but so what?What does one do after coming here rather than just walk around and look at the not so beautiful buildings.There is a small area with colourful flowers, but I found the place rather boring.A lot of street hawkers would keep you occupied, trying to sell all sort of things to you and the bargain you get really depends on your negotiation skills.

Overwhelming history

When you see the size of Tiananmen Square and imagine it filled with emotionally charged people, you tremble. Make sure you visit either before 11 or after 4. Wear comfortable shoes as there is considerable walking and vehicles will drop you far off. If you have the time, you can look at the National Museums around.
