I think Beijing is a good place for travellers.
they said the Tiananmen Square is the biggest square in the world.
One will easily be lost there. 8)

Do you remember something inhuman that happened in this square? The ruthless massacre which involved the Chinese military force? I can't recall the year. Maybe I'll go find it out through the search engine later.

It would be a dream for me visit chine some day. I could get there only if I win the lotery.
....
But maybe we can do anything to meet us at Beijin in 2008, we have 3 years to get the money for the airplane ticket.

I mean my proposal is that the ECmembers from China do a report of expenses at China, like food, Hotel, transportation, etc. If someone could give us a place where we can sleep we save the money for the hotel. Then we only have the expenses in food and transportation. Maybe some of our friends at China know which days the museums are free, then we save money too, and in this way we can do our trip becaming cheap. and we can meet us.
What do you think?

Hi, Asep. I'm from Beijing. Yeah, when the incident happened, I was 9. Though, it was a true thing, I think it should not have been the most important thing in Beijing, since there was at least one the same incident happened in any other big city in the world. it is common for the progress of politics and society. do you think so?

The most important thing is that Beijing is much more cleaner and beautiful than before. The days possessing bule sky are more and more. Though the traffic problem and other some problems are also serious, you can't be albe to make no sense of her great advancement.

Welcome to Beijing whenever and whoever!

like announcement from government? :D

Lucy if you refer to the succed in Tiananmen square at 1989 I should tell you that it was too important and the fact put the chinese government in a bad position in the international comunity.

Not all the days government kill young people because they dislike, because they think different. At México at 1968 there was a similar fact, at square Tlatelolco, and now, 36 years later citizen continuo thinking the government was wrong, and the autors of that killing should pay for the crime.

If Beigin is a beautiful city with good enviromental very good, but I think first is the respect. the respect to the ideas of the people, that is Democracy.

Well that is my pint of view, sorry if I said something that you dislike.
