Living in the Olympic City?

Bustling Beijing, I have been told, offers countless new experiences for resident expats. Flicking through two review copies of books that arrived on my desk this week, Insider's Guide to Beijing 2008, by Immersion Guides, and a preview copy (that was distributed at the Beijing Expat Expo this week) of Beijing Explorer: The Complete Residents' Guide, by our friends at Explorer Publishing, who kindly donate our great monthly giveaway, I have to agree.

Is there anything this city does not have to offer? Maybe clean air is hard to come by, but I would hazard a guess that you could even find some clean air in Beijing if you needed it, via 'drop in oxygen bars' or something similar.

In short, if you are in Beijing, or moving to Beijing, I definitely give these books the thumbs up for helping you to make the most of your time in Beijing. From what I saw, there is just no way that you could discover all of the options presented in the books by yourself... or even through your local expat club... or even if you married a well-connected Beijing local. These books are a feast for the senses. Check them out if you are in, or moving to, Beijing. :-)

Warmest regards, Andrea.

Disclaimer: Expat authors and publishers sometimes like to send us review copies of their books. If we consider the books useful to expatriate women, we typically list the books on our Country Books pages. We may also mention the books here in our blog and/or feature them in our newsletter. For the record, we are not paid for these mentions.
