July 2000 Issue

face.jpg (39312 bytes)Hot, hot, hot! Like its sizzling weather, Beijing is to increasing degree staging more and more "hot" events. The recent automobile show was nothing less than feverish Beijingers and international car manufacturers alike. In July, "soft-hearted" Taiwan singer Richie is giving two solo performances at the Capital Stadium, the second one clearly targeted at perspiring senior-high school students fresh out of July 9 college entrance exams. Soon after, China's first-ever international bungee jumping contest will be held at Shidu (Ten Ferries). Hot, bouncy stuff indeed!

For those who hate the heat, plunging into water is the best relief, so see our recommendations for cooling activities on pages 22 to 24. Perhaps you can climb the highest mountain in Fangshan, or venture into the stone flower caves for a fun escape from the sun. Caves can be beautifully cooling.

This issue we also feature the two new museums now open in north Beijing. One is concerned with modern science and technology, the other to modern Chinese literature. They are definitely worth a visit.
