Living in China can be stressful.
On a daily basis you’re surrounded by honking horns, crowded subways, long work weeks, and if you’re like me, you may also have five roommates.
After a long week of work, wouldn’t it be nice to wake up in a plush bed with a real mattress? Might it be fun to get out of your second-tier city for a weekend of exploring the hutongs and hiking the Great Wall? Wouldn’t it be cool to spend your evening embarking on a fantastic food tour, or enjoying a presentation and baiju tasting at Capital Spirits?
Sounds like the ultimate Beijing staycation, am I right?
A Fantastic Staycation With UnTour!
Remember that one time I went on a food tour in Beijing’s hutongs with UnTour? Well, they’re back at it again with more awesomeness!
For those of you who live in China, UnTour has provided an awesome staycation package worth 13,000 RMB!!! (Almost $2,000 USD!!)
What’s included in this staycation?
First, you’ll have two nights accommodation at the Rosewood Beijing, one of the best hotels in the entire city. Right in the heart of Beijing’s CBD, the Rosewood has an in-room coffee machine, nightly turndown service, a luxurious pool, and jacuzzi. After years of living in a cramped apartment with no mattress and a shower that soaks the entire bathroom, this sounds pretty good to me…
UnTour’s Awesome Prizes!
Aside from two nights in the wonderful Rosewood hotel, you’ll also receive two tickets to both UnTour’s Beijing Hutong Breakfast and Old Beijing Dinner tours. You’ll also get a free private driver to take you to the Great Wall, and a Baijiu tasting and presentation at Captial Spirits, a famous local baijiu bar and distillery. Here you can try baijiu cocktails that are actually drinkable. Seriously!
What else will you win? Round-trip train tickets for 2 people from wherever you are in China (if needed), a 2-hour Snapventure photoshoot with WanderSnap, and some incredible discounts to local restaurants and bars!
- 500 RMB to Arrow Factory Brewing, one of Beijing’s top local craft beer bars
- 400 RMB for Tribe Organic restaurant (keepin’ it healthy!)
- 300 RMB in wine from Sherpas, the Western food delivery app
You’ll also receive a few more goodies to take home with you:
- Beijing’s Glutton Guide E-book
- An Egg Cafe tote bag
- Strictly Cookies Sampler Box
- 2 jars of Naked Nut Butters
If there’s one thing I love about Beijing, it’s the incredible duck you can find all over the city! Seriously, you can’t leave Beijing without trying some Peking duck. Be sure to try both the savory plum sauce and the sweet blueberry and pop rocks for the crispy skin (yes this is a thing). #untourcontest #givemesomecrispyduckfat
