The China Study Tour July 2016 provided an amazing opportunity to visit three major Chinese cities – Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing with seven tourism and event students.
Our accommodation at the Harbour Plaza Hotel Hong Kong was magnificent. The location was perfect and very convenient with a short bus trip to Kowloon and to the local metro train station. All rooms had superb views to Victoria Harbour and the huge buffet breakfast was a great start to the day. A highlight of our stay was a Hotel Tour and Talk by the Assisting Front Office Manager Alan Leung
Hong Kong Disneyland was an action packed day to enjoy all the Disney characters, rides and shows.
Four days in Hong Kong experiencing the shopping, local Chinese food and key attractions including the Peak, Star Ferry, Disneyland plus a trip to the History Museum was a great first leg of our fourteen day tour.
Shanghai was eye opening with its massive urban landscapes and phenomenal city views.
In Shanghai our tours included visits to Yuen Gardens, Jade Buddha, the Shanghai Art Museum and the Shanghai Convention Centre plus the Oriental Hotel on the Bund.
The temperatures during our stay in Shanghai was sizzling hot with over 40 degrees and high humidity. Our accommodation at the Sofitel Hotel was at the heart of the best shopping along Nanjing Road.
Shanghai has lots to see and experience.
The real highlight of the China Tour was Beijing and all the World Heritage sites of the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the spectacular Great Wall of China.
The China Study Tour was trully amazing
