Go Kart Park

 stars
Most people I know in Beijing have complained that after the first few days spent visiting the famous tourist sites, there is little to do in Beijing besides eat and drink. It’s true that certain more random types of entertainment are harder to come by, but they are there if you know where to look. Case in point is the Go Kart park in Gaobeidian. It is something of a hassle to find (just east and north or the Gaobeidian train station), but is a terrific outing for an afternoon. I found the cars to be substantially faster and the other racers substantially more willing to ram you that has been the case in the United States, but whenever I feel like risking my life this is one of the places in Beijing I am most likely to do it.

Hidden Treasures

 stars
I normally hate shopping, and think shopping in Beijing is among the worst experiences one could possibly imagine. This is not true of the furniture street at Gaobeidian, however. I was completely and utterly charmed by the rows of furniture stores and antique markets. Unlike at places like Panjiayuan or the Silk Market, no one was hassling me to buy things. Even if I don't intend on buying anything, I will definitely go back just to get away from the hustle and bustle of Beijing a bit. The fact that, on top of this pleasant atmosphere, the goods on display are of really high quality just serves to seal the deal.

The thing that impressed me the most was that the carpenters lived in the areas right along the street, so if there were any pieces that you liked, you could have them recreated or altered however you see fit. This is particularly cool for some of the antique pieces. I was able to get a gorgeous antique bed recreated for one tenth its original price, and I would not have been able to tell the difference between the two. [more ]
