I was glad to see the square again this time, but from above. I remember being here a few years ago, but it's much better to come at night with all of the lights and people around. I had a great view of it from my hotel room, too. Recommended!

May 4th Square is very beautiful, high buildings around it. Nothing much to do, besides walking around. You can see the ocean, but smells pretty bad.

This square is the heart of the city, and the structure of this square named the Wind of May, actually reflects the power and energy of this Harbour city. I love this place!

This park or square is right in the heart of the city near city hall (within walking distance). I visited this location on Father's Day and there was an interesting variety show with singing and dancing - all very interesting. The sculpture right in the heart of the park and theater is exactly what you see in the tourist promotion... More

This square main attraction is the unique red monument. The name May Fourth comes from the time of the Chinese youth movement. It's located just next to Olympic Sailing Center, so you can just simply walk there after taking some pictures.

The square with the monument/sculpture is nice to look at, the park a pretty place for a stroll. Sadly, the vendors are horribly annoying, but if you can tune them out, it is a rather okayish place for enjoying a walk on the sea.

Best to go on a non holiday. Before May 1 and after Oct 1 holidays. People flying kites, kiddy bubble machines and grass you can actually sit on.
