Visiting a School in China

As a China Tour Operator I am often asked by clients if it is possible to visit a school. It is not always possible but in a few cases it may be arranged especially in the countryside where the children do not often get the chance to meet foreigners. Above my friend Mr. Li took me to his village in the countryside where we visited his Dairy farm, had lunch at the farm house and visited a local school that had just opened. Note the friendly and smiling faces of the children who were so happy to see us. Mr. Li was born in this village in a urban cave home and then moved to a clay brick home later. He was the first child in his village to attend the University in Xian. He now is the Sales Mgr. of a large Travel Service in Xian.
It is difficult to visit a school because of the disruptions it would cause if all tourists were allowed to visit. In large cities there is the Children's Palace which are schools for art, music, computer and other studies for AFTER school. There are also sports schools and we can make arrangements to visit these if done in advance. China Tours is our business specializing in custom private tours for individuals or groups that come to us with an agenda. We also have China Tour Packages on our web site at We have 21 years experience in doing Tours of China as a China Tour Operator. Silk Road and Tibet tours also.
