The Colorful Cars of Beijing

Driving a luxury car in Beijing for the rich seems to be as much about standing out and being different as it is about having fun, at least for a small segment. Why sit in luxury in a boring white, black or even silver high end car when you can make up any color you want? I toggle back and forth between amazement, envy and humor when I see the amazing rainbow and hues of the colors. The gaudier the better it seems.


  1. Hi, I'm moving to Shunyi with my husband in late August, and it's not something that I'm particularly excited about (to be honest, I'm scared out of my mind ) But reading your blog has helped me see that it's possible to have a normal-ish life there, so thank you! And anymore tips for newcomers to Shunyi will be a pleasure to read! :)

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words, I was also scared out of my mind upon my moving to Beijing. Don't worry, lots of nice people to help you out and a small but cohesive community through the schools. Any specific questions I can ask?
