Off-the-Beaten Path in Beijing
The Wall Street Journal featured new things to do in Beijing, China, in its travel section this month. Entitled “Only in…Beijing,” the article highlights “four oddball things worth slowing down for in China’s frenetic capital” and goes beyond the larger attractions in Beijing (such as the Summer Palace, Forbidden City and the Great Wall) to feature sights and experiences “off the tourist track.”
Here’s a surprising one for China: how about the most bona fide Korean kimchi available? The article shares where you or your clients can eat at a North Korean government-run restaurant in Beijing, where the waitresses are “said to train in North Korea for a full two years before being allowed to leave the homeland to serve bibimbap.” To read where exactly you can taste this in China – as well as the three other incredible experiences and sights the WSJ describes, go to http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324503204578318531083850050.html.
