Food and beverages from various corners of the world were on the menu for visitors in Beijing as China’s capital hosted the One Belt, One Road International Food Carnival over the weekend.
As a part of Beijing’s consumption season, the two-day event, which started on Saturday, provides with a series of experiences such as a yoga class, tent hotel, RV camp and global delicacies.
“On this street, we can eat some great delicacies from many countries and regions in China, such as Taiwanese pork sausages as well as French desserts. It feels like you can sample a lot of food without leaving your home country. I’m very happy,” said a visitor at the festival.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to ease in China, some online events during Beijing’s consumption season have been replaced with offline activities.
Beijing has offered vouchers worth 12.2 billion yuan (about 1.7 billion U.S. dollars) to spur consumption dampened by the COVID-19 outbreak.
