The September issue is hot off the press and this month’s feature is all about family. Six families share their story of love, life and raising kids in Beijing.
Head to the peak of Jingshan, the big hill just north of the Forbidden City. Explore the surrounding park and read about what other fun things await you. And keep minds busy indoors with a science project that transforms a cup into a clucking chicken.
Elsewhere in the magazine, get cooking with new Food for Thought columnist Jennifer Thomé. For her first recipe, she shares a Mexican favorite that’s easy to make. Best of all, we’ve included a Chinese version of the recipe to share with your Chinese-speaking friend or to give your ayi for a night off from cooking. For some delicious baked goods, eat out or order in at one of our Top 5 picks. Also, bone up on some tips for healthy eating at home from nutritionist Olivia Lee.
For travel tips and ideas, check out recent Family Travels to Xi’an and Dali. Or plan a weekend trip to Dalian, a great locale for swimming, history and Italian and Korean eats. Speaking of traveling, Dr. Richard Saint Cyr tells us about must-have vaccinations in Beijing and suggested ones for Asia.
See what our regular columnists are writing about this month. Beijing Baba Christopher Lay combats crying as a form a manipulation. And Dinah Chong Watkins shares some insight into the infidelity of men.
As always, find kid-friendly events, search our Directories for anything and everything you’ll need in Beijing, and read about other families’ travel destinations.
