Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Spreads Environmental Awareness
True to Fairmont’s ecological principal, the hotel group’s three properties in China, Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, Fairmont Peace Hotel and Fairmont Beijing will join forces on September 8 and 9 to hold the first Green Open Doors weekend program, which is open to the public.
Packed with activities, the Green Open Doors weekend invites guests and local residents to learn how each hotel incorporates environmentally-friendly practices into their daily operations with free behind-the-scenes hotel tours and cooking demonstrations.
At Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, the tours will explore the organic farm and guests will be able to sample the home-grown produce. At the iconic Fairmont Peace Hotel and Fairmont Beijing, guests will tour the environmentally intuitive guestrooms, restaurants, as well as the hotel’s kitchens where cooking demonstrations will be hosted with resident chefs, including Chef Steven Liu, judge for Master Chef. Furthermore, at Fairmont Peace Hotel, the tours will incorporate a talk hosted by local partner Roots & Shoots educating guests on their environmental stewardship.
The tours are complimentary to join, but reservation is required and can be made directly with the resorts. See below for schedule:
· 3 tours at Fairmont Yangcheng Lake at 10am, 2pm and 5pm on September 8 and 9
