This impressive and beautifully painted gate is located at the south end of Tiananmen Square and is the gate for the inner city of Beijing. It is easily seen as you enter the square and is a great meeting point because you cannot miss it.

These guys tend to shut down early. The night market in Beijing closes at nine at night. While in Hong Kong it went much later. I think it is to do with the Law & Order Philosophy of the Government. I went to Hong Kong in... More
