Equity School travel to China

School trips to China

China may be the world's fastest emerging economy, but that doesn't mean it's all big cars, towering sky scrapers and high speed trains. As the world's oldest civilisation, it's got tons of history that's bound to fascinate your students, as well as an extraordinary cuisine and vast and diverse landscapes. Head for the Great Wall of China to marvel at man's fortitude, the Forbidden City to soak up some myths, or to the Terracotta Warriors to fall under their spell. Educate your tastebuds with snake porridge from Guangdong, braised abalone from Shandong, or fried pork with salted pepper from Sichuan. To appreciate the incredible scenery, take a cruise down the Li River in Guilin, which featured in Star Wars: Episode III, marvel at Red Stone Park, or explore Leye Tiankengs, which are rare karst caves high in Guangxi Province. And that really is just scratching the surface of what this incredible country has to offer.
