And we admit we’ve been going a little overboard with the ‘Miniature setting’, which turns every scene into something akin to a tiny toy land.
Here are some photos we’ve taken around Dongcheng district over the last couple of days. Sweet aren’t they? And are we crazy or does the temple building look edible? As though it’s made of marzipan?
No? Just us? Must be lunchtime…

‘The Temple Hotel’ near Jingshan Park may finally be worthy of its title! After years of delays, the beautiful Songzhu Temple is finally morphing into an 8-bedroom boutique hotel and restaurant due to open by the end of the year. Light installations by James Turrell, a restaurant by former Maison Boulud man Ignace Lecleir, and a viewing gallery of antique Tibetan rugs are all on the cards. We can’t wait.
