Tourist Attractions and Activities
In addition to exploring Shanghai –China’s most exciting city — a day trip gives students an opportunity to venture out and see one of the Yangtze River Delta’s most historic cities. Students will also visit Beijing — the heart of both modern and ancient China! The program also includes several delicious traditional Chinese meals and a variety of fun activities.

Shanghai: When you think about modern China, chances are you’re thinking of Shanghai. Step into Shanghai and you immediately see the confluence of old world and new world, where centuries-old traditional Chinese culture and historic buildings sit up against a backdrop of modern skyscrapers. You can feel the city’s incredible energy the minute you set foot in Shanghai. The flashpoint of China’s economic explosion and a genuine trendsetter, Shanghai truly is the country’s most dynamic city.

Beijing: Travelers to China’s capital will find a city overflowing with history and culture. From Kublai Khan to Chairman Mao, this city has been at the heart of Chinese civilization for more than 1,000 years. From the Summer Palace to the Forbidden City, from the Great Wall to Tiananmen Square, and from Chairman Mao Memorial Hall to the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium, Beijing is truly one of the world’s most beautiful and cultural cities. No matter where you go in this city, you’ll find an intriguing mix of the ancient and modern.

Yangtze River Delta Cities (Day Trip Options):

Hangzhou: Marco Polo once described this ancient capital of China as the finest and most luxurious city in the world. Hangzhou is now the capital of Zhejiang, China’s most entrepreneurial and, at times, chaotic province. Despite being the capital of Zhejiang, Hangzhou remains a sanctuary. Whether you’re looking for somewhere peaceful to relax or for some fun outdoor activities, Hangzhou’s historic West Lake scenic area has much to choose from, including an abundance of bike trails and boating opportunities as well as over 60 cultural relic sites.
