The team here at the Haute Hotel Network lives to find the best luxury experiences in the world and to share with you our favorite destinations, hotels and pastimes. Lately, we’ve been on a foodie kick, traveling to new hotspots for new gourmet experiences. Today, we’re bringing you to Beijing, where the Shangri-La Hotel is helping us plan our next foodie trip. The luxury hotel has created an exclusive, interactive dining experience for their guests looking to explore the world of Chinese cuisine.
The experience begins with a stay at the Shangri-La’s sumptuous Valley Wing Premier Room, where guests can relax, shake off that jet-lag and take in the incredible city views. Once acclimatized, guests set out on their journey to a local market visit, where they’ll enjoy traditional meals, a dim sum cooking class and even participate in the historic ritual of the Chinese tea ceremony. From there, we recommend venturing out into the Old City to take in sights like Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Lama Temple and the city’s traditional silk markets.
If that seems a bit overly-adventurous for you, fret not; there’s also plenty of luxury relaxation available, with limousine car service, spa treatments, a magnificent garden and modern meals at the hotel’s 5-star French restaurant S.T.A.Y.
The Shangri-La Hotel Beijing is located at 29号 Zizhuyuan Road, Haidian, Beijing, BJ, China, 100089. For more information call +86 10 6841 2211 or visit their website. Images courtesy Shangri-La.
