DESTINATION CHINA

Summer in China...

August 2015


While China is best known for its historical monuments and its cities of modern architecture and soaring skyscrapers, it has another side. With thousands of kilometres of coastline, it has some beach destinations which are becoming options as organizers and companies that have been to China already are looking for new options outside the key cities and those that want extensions or some downtime for their group.

Besides the well-known island of Sanya, there are a lots of beautiful beaches in China:

 

Dong’ao Island, Zhuhai

On the fringe of an area better known for its reputation as China’s industrial heartland is a little known treasure that is a great get-away -Dong’ao Island. The island's international potential has been highlighted with the opening of the latest Club Med in the region. 

Club Med Dong’ao Island covers 6.5 hectares at Dong’ao Island in Zhuhai. The resort encompasses two Club Med concepts: the Premium Resort Club Med (opening in July) with 267 rooms available and the more exclusive Le Luxe by Club Med, with a total of 72 rooms including pavilion suites with private pools, family suites, and deluxe sea-view suites.

A great city and beach combination with Hong Kong, Beijing or Shanghai.

Location – A ferry ride from Hong Kong or flights from Beijing (3.5 hours) or Shanghai (2.5hours). All services run on a daily basis.

 

Qingdao

Qingdao is not a beach resort in the traditional sense, but a city on a beach. The location of the sailing activities during the 2008 Olympics, this is a place that can be a great combination of both a city and a beach in one. A full incentive or meeting and conference option.

As a destination it has everything; history, great occasions and international hotels with flexible function space. It also has the oldest brewery in China – built when the city was a German concession over 100 years ago, beautiful vineyards, great beaches, some of the best seafood you will find anywhere, sailing and great golf courses. It is a beautiful seaside city with enchanting sea views.

Qingdao International Beer Festival

One of Qingdao’s most famous names is “Tsingtao Beer” which can be found the world over. What people don’t realise is that it is just one of many local beers available here and the best place to “taste China’s beer culture” is at the Qingdao International Beer Festival. This event is held every year in late summer, its origins stemming from when the Germans held Qingdao as a concession at the end of the 20th Century and who started the Beer Festival. They were probably missing the Oktoberfest back home.

If your group doesn’t visit during the Beer Festival, they can visit the Qingdao brewery and enjoy a drink with the brewery’s staff after it is completed. Much of the original brewery is still intact and in operation.

Location – There are multiple flights daily from Beijing (1.5 hours), Shanghai (1.5 hours) and Hong Kong (3.5 hours) to Qingdao. By bullet train, Qingdao can be reached from Beijing in 5 hours.
