Grand Tour of China
Now with eight hotels in China, Four Seasons offers prime locations in all of the country’s most important destinations.
“We’re making it easy for our guests to plan a ‘grand tour’ of China, or to get to know specific regions in depth,” says Mr. Chris Hart, president of hotel operations, Four Seasons Asia Pacific. “Our guests really appreciate the reliability of Four Seasons service. We’re there every step of the way. Our staff can help to demystify a trip to China, making it easy and approachable.”
Hong Kong is 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 luxury shopping and sightseeing.
Within an hour of Hong Kong are Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou and Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen. These cities may be known more as business destinations, but they are both full of surprises and well worth a leisure visit – even a quick one – to explore local cuisine, shopping, art and architecture. For casino gaming and entertainment, it’s easy to jump from Hong Kong over to Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip®. Be sure to visit Macau’s historic centre, which reflects the city’s founding by the Portuguese in the 16th century.
Travelling midway up China’s east coast, guests can experience the two sides of booming Shanghai, combining art-deco mystique with modern glamour. 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. The spa is a must, featuring treatments inspired by the emperor’s bathing rituals and a design reflecting ancient Chinese palaces.
And, in China’s capital, Four Seasons Hotel Beijing provides the perfect home base for visiting the Forbidden City and the Great Wall.
“We’re opening up a whole new world for Four Seasons guests,” says Chris Hart. “Our hotels provide special access and insider experiences – from touring the Great Wall to meeting cool fashion designers in Hong Kong and visiting artists’ ateliers in Shanghai.”
