Instructors Kenneth Wong and Li Yu will lead you through an 19-day itinerary to Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Kunming in Yunnan Province, packed full of experiential learning through visits to local businesses, as well as historical and cultural sites.  

Shanghai, the financial centre of China, brings together the old and new in one mega metropolitan city. 

Hangzhou, host of G-20 Summit 2016, is a showcase of Chinese culture with both architecture and natural sceneries, including the famous West Lake. 

Kunming, a.k.a. the "Spring City", is a popular destination for its mild climate, even in the summer. It is also home to some of the largest agricultural industries in the country. 

The Yunnan Agricultural University will offer a lecture series, complete with cultural experiences.  Students will live on campus while in Kunming, and therefore have plenty of opportunities to interact with local students and instructors.  Most weekends and evenings will be kept free for your personal exploration.
