Massive crowds attend the daily raising and lowering, at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., respectively, of China's national flag at the north end of Tiananmen Square. Jostle with locals for some elbow room and catch a glimpse.
- The Chang An Avenue, stretching 38 kilometers and running east-westward through the Beijing city proper, is known as the first street and façade of the capital. It is definitely a must-see for first-time visitors. Both sides are lined with famous high-rise buildings. The avenue offers a rare opportunity to reflect on the city's past, present and future. The Tiananmen Square, located in the middle reach of the street, is filled with historic relics and legends, and the flag raising and lowering ceremonies there often attracts a large crowd of observers.
