    Thanks to Air Canada, flights to Beijing from the U.S. are still heavily discounted. Round-trip journeys are normally upwards of $1,000, but fares are as low as $493 round-trip from Chicago, $439 round-trip from Seattle, and $601 round-trip from Washington D.C. All have a brief, three-hour layover in Toronto (YYZ), but you can extend it to explore the city by taking advantage of Air Canada's free stopover program. shanghai to shenzhen Travel is valid from September to December, when Beijing has a pleasantly mild climate (highs are in the low 70s). We expected these fares to last a day or two before disappearing, but Air Canada's sale site says these will likely last until July 3. That being said, fares are first come, first served, so act fast.
    Besides as a quick stopover to take in the Forbidden City or as a launching point for a day-trip to the Great Wall, Beijing is often overlooked in favor of the more cosmopolitan Shanghai and Hong Kong. But you’re missing out if you don’t devote a couple of days to take in the capital with its labyrinthine hutongs, or traditional alleyways, and some of the best street food you’ll find north of Singapore.
    Make The Opposite House, a jade-hued glass box in the heart of Beijing’s bustling Sanlitun district your home base. You could spend a whole afternoon soaking in your room’s Japanese-style wood tub (one way to beat—or embrace—the jet lag) and cataloging the hotel’s extensive collection of paintings and sculptures by up-and-coming creatives from the region, but block off some time for exploring too. The best way to see the city is from the seat of a bicycle and the hotel's fleet of e-bikes will have you zipping along the city's extensive bike lanes like a pro. Feel free to wander and get a little lost; you can always find your way back with the help of GPS (you'll need to rely on something other than Google Maps, unless you have a VPN to get around China's Great Firewall). Biking through the chaos of Beijing is less scary than it may first appear—just remember a few tips: Be one with the flow of traffic, don't make any sudden movements, and ride with confidence. Reward yourself with a pint of Honey Ma Gold, a beer made with local ingredients including Sichuan peppercorns, at Great Leap Brewing, a craft beer upstart with an extensive back patio.

    I've read the book and really enjoyed Google it.
