History College Trips & Tours to China

Students on a study tour to China will discover a country of contrasts. In recent years the economy has exploded to become the world’s second largest, meaning that the huge modern cities of Shanghai and Beijing sit alongside the more traditional way of life still in existence in the countryside.

Discover the ancient history of the Terracotta Warriors in Xian and visit the desert landscapes of the Silk Road and of course, The Great Wall. Educational trips to China make for a fascinating visit for college and university students of a range of subjects. Architecture, History and Economics students will find lots to tie in with their learning whilst being able to visit the venue that provided the world with one of the most memorable, visually stunning Olympics of all time. Its distinctive culture and landscapes will provide a welcome backdrop, whatever your study theme.

We are sure any educational trips in China will leave you with a new found understanding for this vast country.
