CNNGo x Hilton x Beijing x theWanderlister

Well here we are. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go visit my favorite city in China, Beijing, with Brew&Post pals, Denise and Jason via Hilton Hotels and CNNGo (now called CNN Travel). Basically I turned in a video to Youtube, auditioning for a spot to go on a trip. I was picked from a handful of applicants and luckily I got to go to Beijing on Hilton as an assignment which was great. I’ve been to Beijing before the Olympics and haven’t really been back since. I was impressed by the city then, but I’m more impressed with it now.

In a nutshell, I think the city is very cool, full of culture and creativity, good architecture, nice people, and great food. It’s not aFinance oriented environment like Hong Kong is, which is a nice refreshing change from this corporate city. Anyway my first of six blog posts for CNNGo x Hilton are up. Check it out, Retweet it, like it, and if you follow my posts, you too will get a chance to win a trip to stay at Hilton Beijing Wangfujing like I did. Don’t wait, read it now!
