China Study Tour Registration Deadline: Feb 28th!

2018 China ApplicationDiscover the urban dazzle of Hong Kong where East meets West!

This study will focus on being metropolitan citizens of Hong Kong by riding the MTR and using Octopus cards to travel to appointments with the Buying and Sourcing offices for major retailers in the U.S.

A welcome meal will introduce you to the food of Hong Kong. A visit to some of the popular sites like Victoria Peak will be included. There's a trip to Shanghai to enjoy the Textile and Costume Museum at Donghua University. In Shanghai and Hangzhou, a tour guide and bus will take the group to the manufacturing sites and other popular destinations. The group will also meet university students in Shanghai and see how they live!

From silk to leather and apparel to home furnishings, you'll see how products are manufactured. From Hangzhou, you’ll travel with the locals on a high-speed train to Beijing for cultural immersion in old China. You'll shop the colorful markets and perhaps take a river cruise. And you will even have free time to enjoy the hustle and bustle of these famous metropolitan cities, too!
