Convenient Locations for Exploring More of China
On China’s southern coast, Hong Kong makes an ideal air hub for arrival or departure, and Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong provides an iconic experience thanks to its harbour-edge setting in the midst of shopping and sight-seeing. Within an hour of Hong Kong are Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou and the new Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen, opening in mid-2013. These cities may be known more as business destinations, but they are full of surprises and worth a leisure visit – even if quick – to explore local cuisine, shopping, art and architecture. For gaming and entertainment, it’s easy to jump from Hong Kong over to Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip®.
Travelling midway up China’s east coast, guests can experience the two sides of a booming metropolis: Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai is immersed in the centrally located and historic Puxi district, while Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai, on the other side of the Huangpu River, is cutting-edge and futuristic. For a taste of tranquillity, a 45-minute bullet train speeds to Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake – a fantasyland of traditional Chinese gardens and temples.
Farther north, in China’s capital, Four Seasons Hotel Beijing provides the perfect home base for visiting the Forbidden City and the Great Wall.
