Beijing - One day

Apr 16, 2007  I woke up at 6:30am, had breakfast, and was out the door at 7:30am. Got to Tiananmen Square about 10mins later. Started in the square by the south side and walked the whole square to the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City opens at 8:30am, got the electronic english guide and went through the entire city. The whole trip took about 3 hours. I could have spent more time but needed to get back to the airport. Dont miss these two spectacular spots. No matter what!
