About this Journey

The costal area of Yixing just over looks beautiful Suzhou. Known for its significant contributions to China’s history and culture, students will be immeresed in history and culture unique to Yixing.  Whether it be through strolls in stunning parks, or through aiding local Monks, students will gain a deep appreciation of the many facets Jiangsu province has to offer through intensive cultural immersion. Too often, we believe that students are not able to fully reflect and connect to the world around them. In this program, we will expose your students to aspects of chinese culture not often seen, ensuring this experience stays with them far beyond their departure.
