Fairmont Beijing is encouraging its guests to forgo exploring the city on four wheels to doing so on two! With an emphasis on being green in keeping with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ well known environmental policies, guests may easily cycle to Beijing’s key landmarks as Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City as well as travelling along a myriad of bicycle routes, guaranteed to keep guests gridlock-free and enjoying the sites of the city.
For those looking for something a little more unusual, Fairmont Beijing has also developed a self-guided excursion into one of the city’s famed and fast-disappearing hutongs, located just a short distance from the hotel. The ‘Heritage Biking Tour’ is available in app format, the highly detailed map including an audio commentary in English or Chinese, social media capabilities that let users directly share details on their experience, a built-in recording feature and GPS to ensure all explorers find their way home! The tour was developed in conjunction with the Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center, a local NGO that works to preserve China’s cultural past.
BMW bicycles are of course, provided to guests on a complimentary basis by Fairmont Beijing, (and Fairmonts around the world), encouraging guests to think in terms of reducing their carbon footprint while at the same time supporting the discovery and preservation of a vital part of the city’s cultural heritage.
The app is available for free download from http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fairmont-hotel-beijing-biking/id467003293?mt=8.
