Journey through the amazing land of China from the ancient Great Wall and the Forbidden City of China’s emperors, to the ultra-modern Tencent (China’s Internet giant). Visit the avant garde 798 Art District, but also the Tang Dynasty Longmen Buddhist Grottoes and Shaolin monastery. Ride on the Mongolian prairies of Genghis Khan. Observe the making of ice sculptures in Harbin and enjoy Shanghai’s Disneyland with its eight (8) themed areas.  Top it all off with time spent with Chinese college students at Belmont’s partner, East China Normal University.
