Is Shenzhen a Good Choice to Settle for Retirement

I met my friends from London in Shenzhen this morning. With no surprise, we talked a lot from Brexit, Great Britain Pound, to their retirement plan. They like Shenzhen very much, and feel like they may settle there. They are already enjoying sort of a semi-retirement lifestyle – working on stuff that interests them without worrying too much about business and finance.

During the very yummy dim-sum lunch, we also talked about flight and hotel loyalty programmes. They are IHG and One World fans. This time they stayed at InterContinental Shenzhen.

Looking at the blue sky and the modern cityscape of Shenzhen, no wonder this place is shortlisted.


深圳適合退休居住嗎?

早上我在深圳和來自倫敦的朋友見面,我們一如既往地無所不談,天南地北從英國脫歐說起,講到英鎊,又談了他們的退休計劃……兩個朋友很喜歡深圳,自然想到退休後要移居當地,其實他們已經處於半退休狀態,只做他們感興趣的事,不需要過份擔心業務和經濟狀況。

我們一邊吃着美味的點心午膳,一邊談到航空公司和酒店的忠誠計劃(loyalty programmes),朋友是洲際酒店集團(IHG)和寰宇一家(Oneworld)的忠實客戶,這次在深圳就住在深圳華僑城洲際酒店

仰望藍天、環視深圳的城市景觀,的確是個宜居的城市,難怪那麼多人考慮在深圳退休了。

One Night in Tianjin

After a nice dinner with friends, I was walking back to the hotel along the river.  In my eyes was the  Tianjin Eye, standing like a giant by Haihe (Hai River or the “Sea River”).

When I opened the door of my hotel room, I was caught by surprise. I could see the wheel right in front of me through the window!

A good choice if you fancy this view – book Holiday Inn Tianjin Riverside.


美麗的天津之眼

在天津短暫停留一晚,和朋友吃過晚飯後,我慢條斯理地沿着海河散步回酒店,天津之眼像個巨人般佇立在我眼前,相當迷人。天津之眼是亞洲惟一一個建於橋上的摩天輪。

回到酒店一打開房門就被眼前的景緻震懾住了,天津之眼從我住的房間一覽無遺!

如果你也喜歡這個景觀,到天津可以考慮天津海河假日酒店
