Yes, I recommend this program

A great experience in China!

I really enjoyed my time in Shanghai, China, on the CIEE: Business, Language, and Culture program. Many of my teachers had impressive business backgrounds and the class material was engaging. I met many close friends from different CIEE programs and really enjoyed the sense of community CIEE created between its students, especially those living in the dorms. Shanghai is a huge city with endless things to do. Plus, no classes on Fridays allowed for longer domestic travel trips on the weekends. I would highly recommend this program!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
1. Make sure to research where you want to do your day and week long CIEE sponsored excursions to find a trip that fits your interests.
2. Less is more when it comes to packing. I only came with one suitcase and then bought another there to come home with and it worked great for me. Almost all toiletries that you can imagine can be found somewhere in Shanghai, you just might have to hunt for specific things.
3. Plan travel to other countries after the CIEE program. China's semester long visas do not allow for multiple entries, so if you want to explore other countries in Asia you will have to plan that accordingly.
