WildChina > WildChina > Beijing Roads Closed for Parade Practice Saturday, September 12

The 60th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China on the October 1st National Holiday is rapidly approaching. In preparation for the major parade that will accompany the celebration, a lot of roads near the city center (Tiananmen Square and Chang’an Jie) will be closed tomorrow.

From the Beijing Government website (Chinese), it seems that the whole area around Tiananmen Square will be closed, including the Forbidden City and Zhongshan Park. WildChina highly recommends avoiding the center of the city, as well as the area near Wukesong Stadium, as road closings will create heavy traffic (and none of the major sites will be open anyways).

Luckily, the weather tomorrow should be beautiful – perfect for a trip to the Great Wall or the 798 Art District!
