When I think of the most famous square in the world, Tiananmen comes to mind even before Moscow's Red Square. I imagine it is the main pilgrimage place for Chinese tourists since both Mao's mausoleum and the Forbidden City are just steps away. Plus who doesn't want to take that iconic picture with the famous portrait of Mao? It's almost like no one would believe you've been there if you don't have that picture...
Believe it or not, of all the places in Beijing, this particular spot at the edge of Tiananmen square was what I remembered the most and enjoyed the most of our week-long stay. This was the ideal place for people watching (and photographing, of course) because everyone had a camera and no one cared about anything else but getting that perfect shot. We all had a lot of fun: they - posing, and me - photo hunting. Now you too can join in the fun!
And here's a bonus! I call this photo "wardrobe malfunction". So yeah, I've been there too!
