Chairman Mao is a name forever linked with China and those visiting the capital have the unique opportunity to visit his final resting place at the Mao Memorial Hall. This site can be found at Tiananmen Square’s southern end and if you are looking for well placed 5 star hotels Beijing has to offer that are within easy reach of these attractions then consider Regent Beijing. One of the best luxury hotels in Beijing, it is located in the historic quarter making it an ideal starting point to your adventures in the city. As you explore Tiananmen Square make sure to visit the Mao Memorial Hall which is also known as the Mao Mausoleum. The marvellous tapestry depicting scenes of nature and the marble statue of Chairman Mao can be seen inside, though the main attraction is at the Hall of Mourning; encased inside a casket made from crystal is the preserved figure of Mao himself, dressed in his customary gray suit. It is quite a site to see and is well worth a visit when in the capital.
