Image of Asia: Visiting Tiananmen Square on May Day

In this photo by Ng Han Guan, visitors on Tiananmen Square take a selfie with the portrait of Sun Yat-sen, who is considered the founding father of modern China. May Day in Beijing means flocks of visitors from outside the city enjoying the national holiday as well as a celebration of Sun. This year, on Tiananmen Square in the heart of the capital, visitors donned neon glass frames and selfie sticks to photograph themselves in front of the Forbidden City and other sites, as well as with a portrait of Sun brought out to the square.
