School trips to China

 

Ever since Marco Polo wrote about his adventures in the court of Kublai Khan in the 13th Century, China has been a place of intrigue for those in the west. Now is a perfect time to investigate China’s vast wealth of culture and history.

Land of dynasties and dragons

 

China is not the world’s first civilisation but it is arguably one of the longest lasting. Its written history starts in 1200 BCE and details events from over a millennium before that, so a visit here is truly a journey to a place with thousands of years of literature, art, history and tradition. Wherever you go, you will see breathtaking diversity and astonishing antiquity. It is impossible not to be amazed by the enormous pace of change here – a 300 km/h train ride to visit the ancient Terracotta Warriors at Xi’an illustrates that perfectly. China is a country where the past and the future can be seen side-by-side.

Visit the old and the new

 

Experience a place where amazing modern architecture and contemporary living coexist with ancient sites and wonders of the world. Voyager Worldwide tours to China promise you extraordinary experiences: one day you’ll visit the Beijing Olympic Park to see for yourself the magnificent and modern National Stadium (Bird’s Nest) and the intriguing National Aquatics Center (Water Cube). The next day, you’ll step back in time to see the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties at the magnificent Forbidden City. Other highlights of the tour include the Great Wall of China, the Yangtze River, Xi’an, Shanghai and, on one evening, authentic and delicious Peking Duck for dinner!

A Voyager Worldwide tour to China gives your students, regardless of the subject or key stage they are working at, a valuable insight into a society and culture that has been hidden and misunderstood for a long time. Engage your students with a trip of a lifetime that will be both mind-expanding and life-enhancing.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” Confucius
“The Great Wall is far more than a triumph of engineering. It is a direct link with the legendary emperors of China’s past, and seems to embody our sense of China as a nation separate from the rest of the world. To see the wall – made from brick, stone, tamped earth and wood – snaking away over the parched mountainsides of northern China – is to imagine more than two millennia of cultural isolation and political resistance.” Chris Moss, ‘The Great Wall, China: Trip of a lifetime’, The Guardian, 2014
