Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

After spending the whole summer in Bali, we are off on a mini-break to Beijing to attend the opening of the exhibition celebrating Bvlgari 125 years of Italian Magnificence at the National Museum of China.  The 125 years was celebrated in 2009 with the opening of the exhibit in Rome which was followed in 2010, by an exhibit in Paris’ Grand Palais.  The Beijing exhibit will run from September 4 to November 3, 2011 and will showcase all the iconic Bvlgari creations from 1884 up to the 21st century.  It’s our first visit to China (not counting innumerable trips to Hong Kong) and we’re looking forward to discovering a new city.  It will be interesting to say the least.  As Facebook and Twitter will be difficult to access, I’ll be posting about our Beijing weekend when we get back.

  1. I don't think so. We're going to try and squeeze in as much as we can in two days though.

  3. Hi Annie,

    Thanks for your note. I’m glad to hear you’re a follower of Travels with a Gourmet. I haven’t been to Hong Kong in 10 years and have never been to Shanghai but I did read a recent article on Travel & Leisure Southeast Asia that might be of help. Here’s the link:
    Hope you enjoy your Hong Kong and Shanghai holiday. Let me know if you discover any new restaurants.

    we are going to Shanghai and Hong Kong next week, can you give me good restaurants addresses ? we love all asiatic cuisines. I’m reading your blog for years now, but have not seen reviews for those cities. Thank you very much.
