A display of vibrant and flashing colored lights awaits those seeking a festive atmosphere at the Solana Shopping Mall in Chaoyang District, Beijing. The mall's annual light festival, which lit up in mid-December 2022 and will run until mid-February, allows visitors to marvel at what feels like a colorful walk through a winter wonderland—Beijing style.
As China adjusted most of its COVID-19 control policies in late November and early December last year, the country has been picking up the pace of work and social life, as well as that of its overall economy. Many popular entertainment and leisure destinations are welcoming increased foot traffic.
