  • This is a broad, modern Street where the entrance to the forbidden city. So if you go to him by this street does not exactly pass. Nice walk along this street, heading to the Forbidden City. Under the Avenue there is an underground passage, by which you can get on the road towards Cjan'men'.

  • On one side, and on both sides and what Beijing Street subway in the basement of the long think I would get in the lane is wide, as the Tiananmen gate and central ministries Center is guarded strictly. Pedestrian crossing is not found in this area, to cross the street by an underground passage.

Combine x-ray examination of luggage as we approached the gate of Heavenly Peace Gate, was so sonoyatoishu "safe" even a sense.
