    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.
