Navigator Chuck Zhang knows where the real adventures lie in the historic city of Beijing — and his recommendations are always accompanied by a tale or two from his own experiences.Awesome architecture, scenic spots, compelling culture: there is no city on earth quite like Beijing. Chuck is at its heart, directing guests at the Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel to its must-see attractions. With ancient treasures like the Forbidden City and Great Wall of China nearby, along with a wealth of contemporary charms, he has an abundance of choices to share with guests. The city has it all and Chuck relishes sharing its most sparkling of treasures. “What do I enjoy most about being a Navigator? Talking to customers and letting them know where to discover; telling stories from my own experiences,” he says.Being a native helps him up to a point, but in a metropolis as rich and dense as Beijing, Chuck is required to refresh his knowledge regularly. He does so by enlisting the help of friends and the Internet to find new places to visit — those that meet his approval are then passed on to guests.Like a true Beijinger, food is never far from his thoughts. He enjoys scouring the local neighborhood for hidden culinary gems and likes to cap a night off in the area with a trip to his favorite whiskey bar. Art is another of Chuck’s major passions, and luckily for him there are a number of small, quirky galleries nearby.
