Here’s the crazy thing about me and Walt Disney World that people have trouble believing; there’s still plenty of things I haven’t done. Despite the 15 years of trips, the 10 years of writing about Disney on the Internet, the T-shirts, pins, the basement full of stuff and the borderline obsession I have with the place, I simply haven’t done it all. That mere fact also happens to be one of the things that I love most about the place. We haven’t stayed in every hotel. We haven’t eaten in every restaurant. Believe it or not we still haven’t seen every single attraction! Not to say that we’re not pretty close.
Beijing is a city of contrasts. It’s a place steeped in over 3,000 years of history that’s positioned itself firmly in the future. It’s a crowded metropolis of nearly 22 million people that still offers peaceful places of relaxation.
CNBC’s “Trailblazers” presenter Tania Bryer discovered China’s capital Beijing through the eyes of one of its most famous residents, the musical superstar pianist Lang Lang. Together they explored the venues that inspired his music, his favorite places to eat dumplings and Peking duck, and Beijing’s maze of backstreets known as hutongs.
Lang Lang is now a global superstar, a rare classical to mainstream cross-over artist. He’s sold millions of albums, topped numerous charts, and is the go-to virtuoso for royalty, presidents and world leaders.
