It’s beginning to look a lot like winter! – and if you and your family are spending the holidays in Beijing and don’t know where to buy a Christmas tree, find holiday decorations, or skate on the best ice rinks (and lakes!), flip to our Holiday Guide for ten must-know essentials this holiday season.
Chilly temperatures and a break from school mean the kids will be spending time indoors – make easy Christmas crafts with Rebecca Kanthor. And tis the season for giving – we spotlight Beijing-based charities that need your help – giving back can be as simple as filling a backpack with items, donating household supplies or volunteering on the weekends.
If the nip in the air has got you down, read tips on an escape to tropical Thailand. For a romantic rendevous for two when you and your spouse want a holiday adventure alone, read about the romantic spots to visit on an Egyptian getaway.
And as always, hear from our resident columnists, Donna Scaramastra Gorman and Martin Adams, see this month’s mom makeover, find the best family-friendly events around town and search our Directories for anything and everything you’ll need in Beijing.
