3). 4 winners will be chosen plus a guest.


4). Must be able to travel to Beijing, China between September 3-9, 2018. (Must have a valid passport and visa)

Head to airbnb.com to see official rules and details. Move fast because this contest closes on August 11, 2018.

 

After you finish your Airbnb experience, check out more of Beijing! As China’s capital, this massive city has a history that spans more than three millennia. Spend some time at The Forbidden City, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987 and is listed by UNESCO as the world’s largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures. Beijing is home to several famous temples and palaces including the Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven, so you’ll also want to take some time to temple and palace hop.

 

We can’t leave out the food! No trip to China is complete without indulging in some authentic Chinese cuisine, so take your pick of hot pots, dumplings, Beijing roast duck, and even spicy crayfish from the countless restaurants and street food vendors in China.  

 

Be sure to enter the contest by August 11 and good luck!
