Cruises to the Summer Palace and Lux Spa Treatments with the Shangri-La Beijing

March 17, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Shangri-La BeijingLooking for a quiet oasis in the Chinese capital? Look no further than the Shangri-La Hotel Beijing, a serene garden retreat in the western part of the city, not far from the Summer Palace and Beijing Exhibition Hall. With beautifully-appointed guest rooms and a spa that oozes luxury, this award-winning hotel has become the choice of both business and leisure travelers in Beijing. Choose a room in the deluxe Valley Wing and you'll bliss out in the expansive space (no less than 50 square meters) with floor-to-ceiling bay windows, a separate walk-in wardrobe, an extended lounge area, and multiple LCD-display televisions. One of the hotel highlights is a cruise on the River Dragon-- the 38-person touring boat moored at the Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing-- to the imperial Summer Palace, including a guided tour. (From April to November, the boat offers four cruises daily.) This exclusive boat trip mirrors the route enjoyed by past Chinese Emperors and showcases a unique slice of life in modern Beijing, as you float by temples and traditional courtyard houses on the riverbanks.
