View On The Go's China tours

One night in China

It was a beautiful evening 28 degrees & not a cloud or skerrick of smog in sight! We were greeted by the wonderful Rajeena & Jin at the Rainbow Hotel Beijing, then taken over the road to a traditional Cantonese Restaurant. It was an unforgettable night: I was introduced to FIRE WATER!! Jin gave us all a welcome drink saying it was there custom to drink on special occasions & all 12 of us threw it down without a thought. It burned intensely, but it was the warmest and smoothest burn ever. Jin turned to the prettiest shade of mauve I’ve ever seen with a grin from ear to ear. A few bottles later we were dancing up a storm at the Karaoke Bar around the corner. When next in China do yourself a favour & try it out – I promise you, it will be a night to remember…..or possibly very easily forgotten. And don’t forget the amazing food!
