A Student Adventure across China

02 Aug 2017

On Saturday 1 July 2017 our Director of Studies, Allan Cairns, and five current and former EIC students set off on a transformational journey across China. They spent 4 weeks travelling through China and discovering its magnificent history, culture and nature. Starting off in Beijing, they then travelled onto Gubeiko and the Great Wall, before heading to Xian and Chengdu. From Chengdu they travelled out of the city to climb Mount Sigunaing and take in the breathtaking scenery in this part of China. The trip then went on to the Sichuan Province to live and participate in a small local village where many Tibetan families live, where they helped out with manual labour around the village and provided English lessons for the children. The last leg of the EIC exhibition moved on to Yangshuo where they took in the beautiful scenery on bikes, with the trip ending in the metropolitan city of Shanghai. 

Michelle, one of our former students, had the following to say about the trip:

"The itinerary for the China trip was just one of a kind, from cities to mountains and from forests and lakes to skyscrapers, plus to have had experienced all of it in just under a month was phenomenal. Every new place we saw, whether historical or natural, always became "my new favourite" but in all truth it is hard to say what was the best part of the trip as all was breathtaking. I am so grateful that Allan and the college has provided such an opportunity as without this I would of never had the chance to experience so much of China, standing on the Great Wall, facing terracotta warriors, conquering a 5000m mountain and with an amazing group is something I will cherish forever.

The China trip has left a positive mark on me. When venturing to further places on our planet, ones mind cannot help but be more enlightened of earths nature and human capability, which also made this trip a humbling experience."
