225009 Travel Guide
It seems like we talk about one Shangri-La hotel opening a week. It's like the brand is giving birth to a brood of properties and we can't keep them straight. We may even have to change our motto--"Hotel Chatters All About Shangri-La" at this rate.
Yep, they've now cut the ribbon on their 35th property in mainland China, the Shangri-La Yangzhou. This one nestled in the heart of the medium-sized city and the luxury hotel marks the first international hotel chain to open in "The City of Poets, Merchants and Explorers".
Featuring its own Asian-style garden, the new hotel peers over neighboring Mingyue Lake offering guests staying in any of the 369 rooms tranquil views of koi ponds and pagodas. Yangzhou is known for its beauty, history and culture and this property is sure to complement the 2,500 year old city.
