August 27 – Day trip to Shidu – Glass bridge walk, Drifting, Rambling, BBQ
Over the years we have been to Shidu numerous times (including last month) and the trip normally sells out very fast.
Pictures from our 16 July 2016 trip can be found here.
This event is for FCGroup members (and friends) who wish to Escape Concrete Beijing for a fun and relaxing day and who appreciate that true Networking and Netbonding is based on shared interests and experiences.
Destination: Shi Du
Date: Saturday 27 August
Meet:07:30 Outside the Hilton Beijing (Liangma Qiao)
Depart: 8:00 (sharp)
Shidu is in Beijing’s Fangshan District (South West Beijing) and is about 4 kilometres from the border with Hebei.
We first discovered Shidu as a day trip destination back in 2007 and have re-visited it many times over the intervening years.
Shidu (literally 10th Crossing) is often referred to as the ‘mini River Li” (Guilin and Yangshuo) and is considered to have the most beautiful waterscape in suburban Beijing.
We believe that you too will find that the combination of the calm, winding Juma River and the pretty, green mountains that straddle it justify this reputation.
Our programme for the day includes lazily drifting along the Juma River, a healthy BBQ lunch from the local farm (and drinks), a stroll though some of the best scenic spots (think East Lake Port) and the glass skywalk.
We anticipate arriving back in Beijing by 8:00pm.
Not included: Personal Expenditure.
