Minds Abroad Trimester Program

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

China is a multi-faceted destination with a range of sights and experiences for all types of international visitors. While many tourists see the huge cities filled with skyscrapers, there are many more smaller and more personable local villages to experience. These are traditional settings that allow Westerners to see the local communities I China. There are ancient cultures and ways of life preserved through these settings.
