Introducing: The Secret Guide and Atlas Obscura Collaboration
First of all, big thanks to everyone who helped welcome us during our official launch last week! You guys are the best, but you knew that. Now, The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing is proud to announce a collaboration with Atlas Obscura - an online directory billed as the definitive guide to the world's wondrous and curious places.
It’s not every day we meet talented, inquisitive, like-minded folks who share our sense of wonderment – and have a gorgeous, informative, engrossing website, to boot. Needless to say, we’re absolutely thrilled to be joining forces with AO.
To give you an idea of what explorers like you can find there, we’ve prepared a sampling, right this way:
- NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT - BEINECKE RARE BOOK AND MANUSCRIPT LIBRARY
- PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC - PRAGUE PNEUMATIC POST
- PARIS, FRANCE - AU BONHEUR DU JOUR
- IKEDA, JAPAN - MOMOFUKU ANDO INSTANT RAMEN MUSEUM
- ROZZANO, ITALY - CATHEDRAL OF ST. AMBROSE - CHURCH OF THE DINOSAUR SKULL
Dinosaurs, ramen, naked girls, pneumatics and rare manuscripts? Be still, our heart.
For the next few weeks, Atlas Obscura will introduce one of our segments on their website and feature an article about our discoveries. Stay tuned for a new feature to be released later today, and check out last week’s introductory post about one of our new favorite places, 1933 Slaughterhouse.
