Rent a villa in Beijing Lido


Lido is a residential area in Beijing

Located in the northeast area of Chaoyang, there is this area called Lido (or Lidu, a it is said in Chinese). Nothing to see with a beach in Venice or anywhere, this is about coninental China.

There is a quick expansion of Beijing, and especially at the east. Lido is rather small compared with other districts in Beijing but this is a dynamic place with an increasing presence of the young Beijing emerging middle class. This is a place with a lot of expatriates as well.

Before Shunyi, the suburd around the airport, Lido has become a trendy place to live in, with rents that are more affordable than in the Chaoyang district while being closer to Beijing international schools. The other big difference between Shunyi and Lido is that it is more active economically.

Economic activity in Lido

There are many compaies, foreign and Chinese, that have settled themselves in Lido, with large office towers such as the Lido Place or the Lido Office Tower. Rent an apartment where you are working can be convenient and you have a lot of choice there.

Lido has a great choice of restaurants, Chinese and Western.
