Gi2C Review of the Best Five Restaurants around the East Third Ring of Beijing

b2ap3_thumbnail_quanjude-6.jpg Beijing is one of the greatest places to live if you’re into food. The authentic Chinese food in Beijing is delicious and extremely diverse, and you also have a multitude of international restaurants to choose from as well!  If you’ve just arrived in Beijing for your Gi2C internship and live relatively close to the second and third ring roads on the east side of downtown Beijing, you will want to experience the following five eateries for yourself:   1. Makye Ame Tibetan Restaurant 玛吉阿米 - 团结湖 Makye Ame has excellent Tibetan food as well as dinner entertainment.  The restaurant is very hard to find so make sure you find it on a map first and have the address in Chinese with you to show local residents if you get lost.

Top Ten Places to Visit in Beijing

b2ap3_thumbnail_image003_20140714-041713_1.jpg 1. The Great Wall You’re thinking “duh” right? But we’re not suggesting the most popular section, Badaling. Try scenic Mutianyu or take the cheap train to Jinshanling then sleep overnight in the nearby village and get up at 3am to walk up the wall and watch the sunrise. Or just spend the night on top of the wall!     2. Summer Palace Ok, so Summer Palace isn’t exactly a hidden place in Beijing. Everyone including tourists have been several times but it is one of the best places to go during a hot summer day. Rent a boat and relax out on the lake. There’s a cool breeze from the water and in the middle of the lake it’s quite peaceful and serene. Money saving tip: If you’re planning to stay in Beijing for over a year, you can get a very cheap year-round ticket from the middle until...

If you plan on doing an internship in Beijing, China’s capital, below are three things you should know before you arrive.  Hutongs.

Because they cover a vast area of Beijing, you’ll likely only scratch the surface during your time in China. You’ll never grow bored exploring them, no matter how...

Gi2C & Santa Claus bring a Merry Christmas to Chinese Orphans

Orphans1While billions of people around the world celebrated Christmas by opening presents and eating good food with family, Gi2C's interns also had an enjoyable Christmas day by spreading holiday cheer to 100 Chinese orphans in ShunYi District of Beijing.  Interns and employees from Lewin International invited Santa Claus (a Gi2C manager) from the North Pole to fly in and join the fun. Santa spent time chatting with each of the kids and asked their names, where they were from and whether they had been "naughty or nice". If they gave him the right answer (which they all did), Santa rewarded them with chocolates and gifts such as kites and games. Most of the kids had never met a real live Santa Claus before and they had endless questions about how the reindeer can fly, where does Santa park his sled, and what subway line goes to the North Pole!  Gi2C's interns played basketball with the boys and skipped rope with the...
