On May 22nd, beautiful poems graced the Liangma River once again. To embrace the early summer, Bvlgari Hotel Beijing presented a garden poetry ensemble ‘A Poem to Time’, in partnership with ‘The Poem for You’ international arts and cultural exchange platform. The grand event showcased a captivating fusion of nature and art that made time appear to stand still.

‘A Poem to Time’ represented a heartfelt tribute to the past and a passion for the poetic beauty of moment. The event seemed to come alive with emotions, colours and stories, thanks to the joint efforts made by Bvlgari Hotel Beijing and ‘The Poem for You’ team. The harmonious combination of dances, songs, recitations and live performances immersed the audience in the world of poetry, with the aim of encouraging them to embrace a slower pace of life, as well as discover beauty in the mundane and overlooked aspects of life.
