More schools are visiting southwest China than ever before. The highlight of the Southwest China program is the visit to the Panda Research Institute in Chengdu, a once in a lifetime experience for students to get up close with one of the world’s most endangered animals. Students learn what is being done to preserve these magnificent creatures, and also experience many natural wonders from a culture thousands of years old. This is an ideal itinerary for schools that have visited China previously and are looking for an alternative to the more mainstream Chinese programs.
school students will increase their understanding of and respect for Chinese
history and culture. Chinese language students will improve their language
skills. Students will also gain self-confidence and improve team bonding.
