Site of the famous "Tank Man" confrontation during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, the main thoroughfare of Chang'an Street encompasses many historical points and political buildings. Strolling along the bustling street reveals some top Beijing sites, including its performing arts center, national museum, and concert hall. Of course, the world-famous square itself draws scores of visitors, as the site of the terrible events of 1989 and the reputed birthplace of the nation's Communist Revolution. Take care crossing the huge, busy road; use the pedestrian walkways that cross beneath the traffic at various points.

  • Cheung on Street is the most famous street in Beijing and the oldest street. It is a street, but the history of the long street is far higher than all the other streets, which are beautifully dressed on the day.

  • The Chang'an Avenue is the wide path that passadavanti in Tiananmen Square on one side and access to the forbidden city. Always full of traffic but ordered it on either side of a series of substantial points. Continues changing name and is the main axis of the city. Staying in a hotel right on its extension to the East there are passed back and forth and I even walked along its side streets. Stunning for its sheer scale.
