Students learn about world history but rarely witness it for real. China is said to be the world’s longest continuous civilization, with some historians marking 6000 B.C. as the dawn of Chinese civilization. There are so many different ways to experience Chinese Culture. This country has an enormous range of interesting cultural relics and activities to experience. You could experience a traditional tea ceremony, visit famous landmarks such as The Great wall or take a traditional martial arts class. The list goes on! Aren’t you convinced yet (at least a bit) that China is you next high school field trip destination? Take a look at our Explore Beijing trip to see what more could await.
There are endless beautiful landscapes in China, with plenty of interesting activities to experience. You can hike in the epic mountain ranges of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park (the inspiration for the landscape of the Avatar film), ride a camel across the Taklamakan (one of China’s biggest Deserts) or camp on the Tibetan Highland at more than 3000m altitude. These experiences are guaranteed to create unforgettable memories for both teachers and students!
Whilst China is rich in history and culture, it has also developed at a rapid pace over the past years. Shanghai is one of the world’s biggest trading harbor’s and features the impressive Bund skyline, now China’s biggest economic center. Our Explore Shanghai trip gives students the opportunity to experience the Chinese Business world, by visiting companies such as Lenovo and Volkswagen Shanghai, as well as taking part in China economic development classes to learn more about China’s growth.
We know how difficult it is to please everyone when it comes to food and specially during a high school field trip. But what better reason to visit China than to try all of the delicious food it has to offer and be sure to please everyone! Chinese food has a high reputation all over the world and by visiting students and teachers will be able to sample a huge variety of Chinese cuisine, from different provinces all over China. Each province has its own unique dishes and flavors; some of our favorites include delicious Shanghai’s Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings), Beijing Roast Duck and Spicy Sichuan Hot Pot.
A trip to China means you will meet people from all over the country who are keen to show you their culture and what China has to offer. On our Silk Road Tour you will have the opportunity to meet families from China’s remote western regions and learn more about their lives, as well as having the opportunity to share your culture and make lifelong friendships with the Chinese students who participate on the trip. Finally not forgetting our friendly staff here at ASDAN China who can’t wait to show you more of China!
