Being such a large country, China has a variety of both landscapes and cultures to explore. Here Rustic Pathways has created programs with a perfect balance of service, exploration, and education. Travel with us to China and volunteer at a world-renowned panda conservation center, visit the country’s top destinations, or learn the Chinese language in the energetic city of Shanghai.
“China recalibrates your understanding of what it means to feel foreign. No matter how many places you’ve been or cultures you’ve experienced, this one is a world apart, where life hustles and bustles with a pulse of dizzying fluidity. Food, cars, voices; you will be consumed by it. Moments begin to replace one another--dancing from quiet to funny, personal to profound, strange to beautiful--and you will find that China has welcome you into her proud and graceful arms.”
--Amanda Cortes, China Country Director
