The famous InterContinental Hotel in Sanlitun, Beijing where most people come for their dream wedding.

Fashion often makes people think of the rhythm of the past and future. Especially in the heart of Beijing's most popular area, Sanlitun, which is famous for its nightlife and entertainment. InterContinental Hotel in Sanlitun, Beijing, is also located here and is surrounded by a unique vibe making your stay even more exciting. You can see people with vintage style bicycles and canvas messenger bags which gives you a nostalgic feel. In the Ying restaurant; you can see old-style tiles in the restaurant along with vintage style lounge walls. To experience the real Beijing style, take a tour of Sanlitun area or simply do nothing, just quietly take a walk and appreciate the art installations that can be seen everywhere. Intercontinental Hotel, Tongli Center, Sanlitun, Beijing has long been a popular landmark in Sanlitun. 

The striking architectural appearance of the building highlights the design concept of the hotel which is inspired by the hexagonal diamond element on the building’s façade. Through the analysis of a diamond’s formation, which is made from constantly refining and polishing the rugged stone, the design adopts the cutting and luster of the diamond to shape the space. This concept is applied throughout the architectural plan layout and in almost every elevation detail. The design looks exquisite and elegant, yet stylish and avant-garde. The spatial space is created through the configuration of various designer furniture pieces and artworks with effective lighting to build up the atmosphere and the dynamic rhythm of the hotel. As the preferred venue for Beijing Central Banquets and Conferences, InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun has more than 1,500 square meters of banquet space, including 800 square meters of the grand ballroom and 8 function rooms, which can meet the needs of new couples. For a wedding, in order to make the overall space more decorated, the decoration of the top of the ballroom is usually an essential part.

In Beijing, I checked out a pink girlish bunkhouse, with the interior of cherry blossom petals as the main color, A large flamingo wallpaper can be seen on the wall, with some small and exquisite furniture, the girl’s heart is bursting, a small green plant near the bedside is, looks very fresh. Here are some of the important things to know about this place:

1 It is located at Exit B of Peony Garden Station on Subway Line 10, go to the airport and take the No. 10 line to Sanyuanqiao Station (6 stations) to the airport line. Distances from the iconic spots such as the Water Cube and the Bird's Nest are also not very far away. Also, you can conveniently avoid traffic.

2 The house is a one-bedroom, but there is also a separate kitchen (even the kitchen is also irresistibly cute, and the interior is colored pink), the bathroom, the kitchen is fully equipped with basic amenities, along with refrigerators, washing machines, etc. People who like to cook for themselves will definitely enjoy staying here. 

3  The house is in the community, and there is a security guard near the main gate downstairs, an access card is required to open and enter the door. The room is password-locked, so you do not need to worry about the safety here. 

4 The room needs to be booked in advance, or else there will be no rooms available, because of the popularity of this place. Such a comfortable, nice and well-equipped room, with other girls to share with, I think that no girl can resist it. Inside this cute, well-furnished room filled with props, you can take amazing pictures in minutes.
