Geocache Description:

A virtual cache at Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China

Tiananmen is the world's largest square, but most people know of it due to the events that occurred in 1989 where PLA tanks and solders opened fire on pro-democracy demonstrators. Nowadays, people wonder throughout the square flying kites and socializing.

Since most of Tiananmen is tiled, there is no place to hide a cache, so a virtual one has been placed here instead. To score a find for this cache, locate the tile at the cache position above and have someone take a picture of yourself and your GPS clearly visible and upload it with your log. To prove that you were at Tiananmen, you should stand infront of the monument located to the south (i.e., stand infront of the monument pictured to the right).

A word of caution: Tiananmen is still under heavy security. On the off chance that there is a large crowd of people or a protest happening in the square then do not attempt this cache!
