You know what? If it's really as terrible outside as you say it is then take the freakin' plunge and go to a bath house! Why not? They're amazing!

Actually, these hedonistic hideaways are disappearing off the map quicker than the Oriental Tower on a day like today, so get in while the water's still warm. Check out Beijing's best bath houses.
