Business and Culture in China

Join FVTC’s Mandarin Chinese instructor Pao-Mi Wei while you chart China’s emergence as an economic power as you explore the inner workings of the local business environment in Beijing and Shanghai. Visit local companies and manufacturing plants* to learn firsthand why China is at the forefront of globalization. To truly understand the roots of China’s business prowess, you also have to delve deep into its historic sites with visits to the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, Shanghai World Financial Tower, and much more.

Fly overnight to Beijing from Chicago and spend 3 nights in Beijing visiting historical, cultural and business sites. Spend the 4th night on a bullet train as it takes you to Shanghai in a soft sleeper. Once in Shanghai, rested from the overnight train, enjoy cultural, historical and business visits for the remaining 3 nights. Departure to the U.S. will be from Shanghai. To see more photos visit:
