Beijing Scene, Volume 5, Issue 6, April 23 - 29

surf's up  

As the weather heats up, thoughts turn to summer getaways.

A favorite retreat from the Beijing heat is the seaside resort of Beidaihe. It is four hours by train from the capital, and the Diplomatic Service Bureau runs a quaint if slightly seedy establishment right on the beach. Room rates start at 300/night. They will take care of train reservations when you book your room. It fills up quickly, so make your reservations early.
