And what better way to encourage soldiers and security personnel to do their jobs properly than by treating them well – very well. ┬áIn fact, soldiers have been checked into five-star hotels in the nation’s capital, with some even staying in the same hotels as VIP guests.

If you think five-star treatment might make soldiers soft, that certainly doesn’t appear to be the case. In fact, photographs from Beijing Youth Daily show the soldiers living a spartan and humble existence despite the major upgrade in accommodation.

Apparently they are even passing on disposable items in the room, which has won the support of netizens around the country. More pictures below:
