Dignitaries and VIPs will be ushered around the city behind tinted windows, clogging up the ring roads even more than normal. Beijingers have even been told they may be given a work holiday during the summit, which runs from November 5 to 11, to help reduce the strain on the city’s infrastructure.

After the VIPs hop out of their fancy cars, they will have some incredible accommodations. Located at Lake Yanqi in the Huairou district of Beijing, these venues look luxurious and regal, befitting any world leader.

Are they going to use these buildings once, and then never use them again?

Will they spray water everywhere in order to get rid of the smog [picknose.emoji]??

In short: simply ruthless [byebye.emoji]
