However, they aren't exactly parallel, they're slightly slanted. I probably should've taken a picture, but I forgot. But here's one I found from Decathlon:

Would they be suitable?
Hi Bonny. This is my humble opinion. These would be better than nothing considering you are in Beijing and not sure your accessibility to some PVC pipes to make your own. Due to the small size of this product, your choices of exercises will be limited. I think you would be able to some L shape situps and overhead pushups (with limited range). Good luck.
