Chinese schoolchildren may have another month to go before summer vacation starts; but in most of the country, it already feels like summer (heat waves have hit earlier than past years, according to China Daily).

So, whether you’ve found a cool poolside reprieve, or are just cooped up in front of your air conditioning at home, TWOC wants to make your summer more enjoyable. We are giving away free one-month access to three e-magazines on WeChat for your summer reading pleasure!

What magazines will I be able to access?

You will have access to our first three issues of 2018. This includes:

“Fast Forward”: Visit the outer reaches of space with the world’s largest telescope; find out how China’s LGBT community is fighting conversion therapy; learn the history of Beijing’s Silicon Valley; and much more

“The Noughty Nineties” Meet the post-90s millennials hoping to change China, and the migrants struggling to survive demolitions in the capital. Take a cross-country journey on a “Chinatown bus,” and join a game of goat polo at a Kazakh wedding.

“Vital Signs” The attempts to reform China’s aging healthcare system are highlighted by the poignant diary of a Beijing grandfather’s dying days. Relive a decade of “human flesh searches,” visit China’s coconut country, and get a first-hand look into booming beverage battles.

What if I am not a WeChat user?

For our international followers who don’t have WeChat, we are providing a discounted yearly subscription to our magazine for international readers: US$64.80 (including worldwide postage!), until the end of July.
