This week we are staying in Miyun at the Beijing Shihao International Hotel. We are on the 21st floor with magnificent views. Actually we saw blue skies for 3 days while we were here. We didn't see blue sky again while we were in China. The local people tell us it is just misty, but it looks like smog to me lol.
The hotel is close to the …
... Time flew by ( pun intended). We took a route across the northern part of the globe. We passed major ice shelves and miles of uninhabitable arctic land. As we got closer to Beijing the landscape was stunning mountain-scapes but the haze even far to the north o the city dramatically impacts the ...
... work - you learn an art by copying the masters, why should writing an essay be any different? Although, with the increase in students studying abroad, it is becoming less acceptable.I won't comment myself, I'll leave it up to you to form an opinion.
Anyway, like I said, we have had an insanely busy week. We have found a cocktail bar just up the road, although the menu is entirely in Chinese, and even with a translator you have no idea what you ...

Anyway, with money exchanged and I paid Ada back for my train ticket, we then went to Joy City for something cold to drink. We ended up at iTea. We got these cool drinks made of green tea, aloe and some sort of fruit with little strange seed-like things. It was good, and they came in these cool bottles.
From there we decided to go to the lakes area ...

Unfortunately, there is no substitute for a brick oven. I grew up in a home that had a large wood-fire brick oven ...
TravelPod Member ReviewsBeijing Shihao International Hotel
Had trouble with the plumbing at 3 am one morning, but it was fixed in about 1/2 hr. A hose disconnected itself from behind the shower unit and was spraying hot water all around the bathroom. Actually we seemed to be the only people staying in the place and it was 28 stories high. We never saw anyone except for the security guard, cleaner and the plumber who came to fix the bathroom problem. The apartment was big, lounge, bathroom, dining room, kitchen & bedroom with marvellous views.
Not a 5 star place but certainly 3.5 - 4 star. Furniture a little old, but comfortable. Carpet old but clean. Mattress hard (as most Chinese hotels are). Location excellant, walking distance to shops and restaurants.
