Beihai Park in Beijing is freezing cold in winter, but Beihai in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region is warm even during the coldest months and is a seaside paradise that is also known for its magnificent pearls. Liu Xiangrui reports.
The winter chills in Beijing make me miss my recent visit - short though it may be - to the warm coastal city of Beihai.
During my three-day stay, I enjoyed the unique charms of the city on the edge of Beibu Gulf of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
The moment we landed, we removed our coats and sweaters. The temperature was hovering around 30 C.
A young city, Beihai looks clean and tidy with rows of new buildings. The roads are well planned, spacious and decorated with colorful oleander flowers, bougainvillea shrubs, and trees with flowers I did not recognize. Green belts in some parts of the city are as wide as 25 meters.
With water on three sides, Beihai boasts fabulous seascape and beaches.
On the first night, we stayed at a hotel by the shore and the balcony facing the sea offered a breathtaking view.
