Hearts Are Floating For...Tiananmen Square - Beijing, China
Visiting Tiananmen Square was probably one of the more subdued tourist stops during our trip to China. The square is massive and sits just across from the entrance to the Forbidden City. The area is sectioned off, heavily guarded by soldiers, and to enter you must pass through security. These are all reminders of the violence that occurred here in 1989 when hundreds of civilians lost their lives while protesting in the square.
