  • I really enjoyed this very special place. I remembered being here on June 4 1989, where the only thing that happened was someone was born that day. Tinannanmen Square was a peaceful place; only students are present for an excursion and some military personnel protecting that place
  • I love China and Chinese people. Very safe country. You can feel safe anywhere. China the whole country it has lovely community, respectful and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Definitely I will go back there. Tiananmen Square is a really beautiful place. So big so nice!
