Thursday Travels is a weekly column featuring sights and sounds from my wanderlust adventures. Come, fly with me, and we’ll explore strange cultures, exotic eats and everything in-between.
Despite having cashed in all our agoda points, The Opposite House still stands as the most expensive hotel we’ve ever stayed at. My only protest: the room was so comfy that we spent half the day soaking in the deep wooden tub and flushing our travel itinerary down the pipe.
When we finally got out, the streets of Sanlitun were wide and clean, sprawling with restaurants, cafes and some of my favourite high-street labels. Altogether, it presented a very different side of Beijing, one that I actually wouldn’t mind living in.
