School Trips to China

A school trip to China will give your students the opportunity to explore one of the world’s oldest civilisations. There is an unparalleled wealth of culture and history to delight and intrigue students as they discover China’s ancient past in Beijing and its modern, pioneering side in Shanghai.

This incredible country more than makes up for the long journey times in the educational value it offers for school trips. In fact, an educational tour to China offers a diverse range of learning opportunities and is an excellent choice for many different school subjects, including Mandarin language, geography, art and business studies.

Geographers can see how humans have adapted the landscape to meet their needs, and how that in turn has had affected civilisation. And linguists will benefit hugely from the opportunity to immerse themselves in both the language and the culture of this, the world’s most populous country.

Your educational tour to China will be an experience that your students will never forget. The opportunity to explore an ancient country with such a unique, rich culture that has had such a lasting impact on the region will be something that stays with them forever.

Of course, if your planning a Chinese language school trip, there is nowhere better than Beijing, the capital and cultural heart of China, where your students will be encouraged to use their language skills to discover the culture and find out more about daily life in the country.

And if you’re looking for a geography school trip that will provide your students with the opportunity to see how the Chinese have, over centuries, exploited their natural landscape for human use, and how this meant that the power was historically centred around the fertile northern plains, where most of the agriculture took place. Contrast this with the rapid urbanisation of important ports such as Shanghai, as exports have become more important to the Chinese economy.
