TOKYO/SINGAPORE -- When Li Jingjie needs a break from her job as an editorial director in Shanghai, one of her favorite getaways is just a three-hour drive away: Club Med.

At the foot of the Lingfeng Peaks in Zhejiang Province, nestled in bamboo forests, lies the Club Med Joyview Anji Resort. During the day, Li can ride horses, relax over tea in the "Zen Zone" or hit the archery range. At night, she can mingle with other guests at parties.
