So while in Beijing last week I had the opportunity to take some time for myself.  I read about Tata Salon in Time Out Beijing and thought I’d give it a try.  For less than $30 USD I was able to get a really good hair cut at a top notch salon.  The guy spent 2 hours cutting my hair including a great head massage.  And it’s right at the north end of Worker’s Stadium (Gongti Beimen), so you can hop on over to the bars and restaurants to show off your new do afterward.

This weekend I made the journey to Hong Kong for the final stop on my 3 week travel adventure.  Mom and I had some mother daughter bonding time, taking a hike down Wong Nai Chung Gap and ending up at Sheila Beauty & Spa for facials.  We arrived completely sweaty but were happy to find a nice rain shower awaiting each of us in our massage room.  The salon attendants customized our facials based on our skin needs and really did a great job.  I highly recommend a stop in to this oasis above the bustle of Central’s De Veoux Road.
