Certified high achievers in terms of growth, investment, technology & GDP. Is there anything they can’t do? Apparently not! China is a global teacher’s pet when it comes to all things business. Come on guys, leave something for the rest of the world!
Arrive in Beijing and make your way to your accommodation in your preorganised transfer. Once you’ve settled in head over to the Summer Palace, the spot for relaxation since 1750. We suggest you head up to the highest peak for the best view of the Beijing skyline. In the evening treat your students to a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, a relaxing way to end to your first day.
Visit a Chinese company to observe first-hand how business works in the world’s fastest growing economy. Enjoy a tour of the offices and a lecture about the business in China, followed by a student-led Q&A session. Students will then return home and enjoy a traditional Chinese meal experience.
Grab your walking boots, it’s going to be a long day! Head to the Great Wall of China for a real taste of Chinese history. This ancient wonder stretches over 13,000 miles, so we don’t suggest attempting it all in one day. After your morning walk, visit the Ming Tombs, located at the foot of the scenic Tianshou Mountain. In the evening enjoy food at a local restaurant, why not follow this with a Kung Fu show at the Red Theatre?
Students will start their day bright and early with a trip to Tiananmen Square; early risers will be able to watch the raising of the flag at sunrise. Spend the morning looking around the temples and museums dotted around Tiananmen Square, including the National Museum of China. Students will then take the train to Shanghai and check into their accommodation.
Today your students will get the chance to visit a factory to see China’s manufacturing industry up close and very personal. Tour the factory and attend a lecture about the organisation and its trade in China, followed by a Q&A session.
Your students will get one more skill under their belt before leaving China. In the morning take a calligraphy class, learn this highly valued ancient skill with the help of a professional calligraphist. Enjoy some downtime in the afternoon before you depart.
