While all of our China tours and expeditions have opportunities to see the dramatic landscapes and ancient archaeological sites, we also feature several tours that offer a more in-depth look at the local culture. China spans across a huge portion of Asia, so the cultural identities of each town are as varied and diverse as the dialects. Depending on which you choose, you could enjoy a homestay with a Tibetan family, see the festivities of several towns as they ring in the Chinese New Year, or listen to local pipe players & practice local pottery in a Miao village, just to name a few options. No trip is complete without getting to know the people, so make sure your trip is not just a scenic destination but a cultural immersion. Start planning now.
