China | One Nation Two Worlds

Capital: Beijing  |  Population: 1.36 billion

Welcome to China – one of the oldest, largest, and most diverse nations on Earth. China’s complex society and rich culture are a sight to behold, and this is your ticket to a comprehensive view. This is not the China you may have imagined in your mind – but it is rich in history and tradition. You’ll live in a rural community to get an authentic experience, see China’s incredible countryside, and make an impact on a village school. You’ll also explore important cultural sites, including the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, and the Great Wall.
