It’s a chance to finally get out of the city and to see things gradually getting back to normal. The diplomats’ visit comes just as northern Beijing’s Gubei Water Town makes a new debut after closing down during the COVID-19 outbreak. The scenic spot invited several diplomats to its reopening ceremony over the weekend, including Consul General of the Embassy of Switzerland in China Christian Gobet, Consul General of the Embassy of the Republic of Croatia in China Marija Haramija and World Health Organization representative Dr. Robert Kezaala. “It’s been a difficult period of time for a lot of industries, especially tourism. So for them to reopen now, I think that the public is obviously thrilled,” said Noah Fraser, managing director of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Beijing. “The recovery in Beijing is doing quite well. Slowly but surely, it’s going back to normal,” said Gobet. Gubei Water Town is located about 150 kilometers away from central Beijing. It’s modeled on southern China’s famous water town of Wuzhen with rivers running through it and traditional Chinese-style architecture.
