Episode 15: Beijing Ghost Stories & Chinese Supernatural Beliefs

The China Travel Podcast

Oct 19 2021 • 31 mins

For our fifteenth episode we asked Jim Nobles, founder of Bizarre Beijing, to chat with us on some of China’s more haunting facets. We cover a range of afterlife and ghoulish topics, from joss paper burnings going virtual due to growing awareness of environmental impacts to Chinese Ouija boards and supernatural beliefs, and of course there’s a smattering of local ghost stories woven in along the way.
