Our driver was vague, the hotel receptionist insisted she'd never seen them before. So we slapped up the photos, ...
Thanks to the kind folks at City Weekend Beijing, for their lovely interview with TheWooLandHotel about AO! See below for the full interview... Or you can read the interview on City Weekend's website.
