School trips to China offer 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.
Why visit China?
Explore the ancient culture
Whatever your reason for visiting, one of the best things about a school trip to China is the fact that it offers your students the opportunity to explore one of the world’s oldest and most influential cultures.
At the Forbidden City, you’ll explore Chinese hierarchy during Imperial times and the importance of symbolism in Chinese culture.
And you can even learn more about China’s recent history and political culture with a visit to Tiananmen Square.
Bring geography to life
On a geography school trip to China, geographers can see how humans have adapted the landscape to meet their needs and how that, in turn, has affected civilisation.
Throughout history, the Chinese have exploited their natural landscape for human use. The fertile North China Plain offered the best opportunities for agriculture and the wealth that was generated here also meant that the political power centred around this region.
When exports became more important to the Chinese economy, ports like Shanghai began to experience rapid urbanisation as people rushed to the new centres of power and wealth.
Get your students talking
If your students are studying Mandarin, a school trip to China is unmissable. They’ll love the opportunity to explore the Chinese culture through their Mandarin skills.
We can also arrange for your group to visit a local school so that your students can practise speaking Mandarin with people of their own age. And while you’re there, you can all enjoy a calligraphy lesson too!
