About

The trip will allow students to explore both modern and historic centers of Chinese civilization, giving them a unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in local environments while also experiencing a broad range of cultural traditions, such as Chinese martial arts, folk dancing and tea ceremonies. Students will spend their first week in Hangzhou at Greentown Yuhua School, where they will stay with host families and attend classes and activities with Chinese students. Afterwards, they will visit other parts of China, including Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an, where they will interact with local communities and tour sights of interest such as the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors. Students on this trip will have the opportunity to host Greentown students when they visit Winsor in April of 2016, thus allowing them to create and deepen a connection they continue in Hangzhou.
