At present, MasterChina offers cultural journeys, and short travel “bolt-ons” as options at the end of one of our Mandarin instruction
summer holiday programs. All journeys are tailored by MasterChina and reputable local professional travel agents that
are experienced in providing travel services to foreigners in China. Our aim is to demonstrate the real face of China and to create
ample opportunities to stay in, and interact with, local communities. As such, MasterChina always arranges a local tour guide as well
as a professional Mandarin teacher to accompany participants. As well as handling the usual logistics, our tour guides’ aim is to give
an up-close insight into the real lives of ordinary Chinese people, as well as explaining our history, legends and customs.
In addition, your guide will encourage travelers to taste authentic local food in small, friendly, family style restaurants; typically
overlooked by larger tour operators. The accompanying Mandarin teacher is there to continue instruction each day (flexibility to tailor
amount of daily tuition is provided on a trip by trip basis) as well as encourage/facilitating practice with locals during the journey.
