The place is impressive and our guide was great on explaining the history and the current use of each building. Very important: try to avoid the hottest hours, there is no shade to hide from the sun!

If you have done your history of Tiananmen Square, you will know why this is a must. You have to go here. I went in July 2017, and it is very very hot. I will try to go back on an evening/night to take in all the lights. I wanted to see this in its natural state, and I think you will enjoy this too. There are a variety of museums and other interesting buildings around the "Largest Square" in the world. You can even see the Mausoleum Of Mao at select times/ of the day. Check out your guidebooks for more specifics. This is a must to do in Beijing.

Good to wander about - some good photo opportunities and lots of history. Great if you have a guide who can talk you through it. If you're not interested in the history then there's not much to do other than the photos...

I'll start this off by saying I'm not much of a history person but you wouldn't know that there is history to this place since most people just stand there and look at the large portrait of mao. Wish there were signs or something that explained the buildings. Also wish people (as in the locals) took more photos of the scenery than of us Americans.

Visited late June. It was not crowded and we just walked around this historical place.
It is actually in 2 parts and both are vast. The small park on one side had beautiful flowers. Maos 1953 portrait can be seen from every angle. Food trucks offer drinks and snacks.
