April 9 to 22, 2012

Travel with Thomas Fingar, PhD '77, a scholar of modern China, whose lectures on the country’s cultural and political history help to make this rapidly evolving country more approachable and comprehensible.


Spend three full days exploring Beijing’s Imperial sites, the old city’s historic hutong neighborhoods and the iconic Great Wall. In Xian, view the massive army of China’s first emperor – thousands of life-size terra-cotta warriors who lay buried for over 2,000 years. Sail down the Li River through the misty limestone peaks of Guilin and see the picturesque garden city of Suzhou. Spend the last two days in bustling Shanghai. Optional post-trip extension on the Yangtze River, April 22 to 26.
