If you’re one of those people who think the good old days were better, when wars were cold and LOL didn’t have a meaning, then you’ll love the Snap Adventures tour of Beijing’s Communist kitsch! Modern Beijing hardly has the look and feel of what you’d expect a from red capital, but those days aren’t completely behind us yet. We’ve found a few places that recapture the feeling, if not the spirit, of Mao, and the optimism of communism.
First we head to the Military Museum, where old war relics and statues proclaim a glorious past and remind us of old Bond movies. We’ll dine at a spectacularly cheesy dinner theatre and see the song and dance of loyal citizens. Finally, we’ll take a drink or two at a kitsched-out bunker bar.
We’ll help you get into the spirit of things with a red armband and those famous Mao hats. You can go even further with an optional Red Army-style winter coat if you pre-order a week before the event!
