The Beijing Cool

Welcome everyone, I am really exited about this website project I am doing mainly by myself, but also with the help of a few expat friends here in Beijing. The bottom line is, that this is a group of Beijingers that are fully dedicated to living here. We are not those weak foreigners with tails in their legs, trying to escape the often harsh realities of this city. Instead, we embrace everything that comes and try to adapt with the folks here. It’s a big barrier to cross, but once it’s done.. some of the most amazing things start to happen. This is all part of the Beijing Cool, because the city is indeed one of the most exiting places to live and play.

We won’t be talking about what everyone else is talking about, since there is enough of boring expat talk around. This blog is dedicated as is our lives here. Every day is a constant exploration of the new, with creativity blooming in many places. You just need to know where to look for it. The language barrier is one stopper, but the main one is the mind. We are going to loosen the frame and help us fellow English speakers to get more into the alternative lifestyle in Beijing.

No bull shit, pure understand, love and crazy shit!

Your host,

Mark Wu
