great wall picnic

Last week at ILTM made miss working in a hotel. Some of my best times were spent at The Opposite House, Beijing where I headed up the PR department with absolutely no prior PR or hospitality experience, my task was to amongst the daily grind of office work – have fun with journalists on press trips where I got to plan all their exciting itineraries and take them to my favourite places. It also helped that I used to work at one of the expat rags which allowed me to get to know Beijing pretty well.

One of my favourite Beijing tourist activity was to go hiking up the Great Wall at Mutianyu and have champagne and a picnic basket ready with unobstructed views of the Great Wall as a backdrop. We had worked with Wild China on this particular press trip and highly recommend booking tours with them.

I’ve also been cleaning up my HD for more disk space. And I found these great photos of going hiking at Mutianyu when it was snowing.
