It is our belief that culture is the fabric from which national identity is woven, and we pride ourselves on the number of cultural exchange programs we facilitate every year. Our exchange programs can involve any group simply interested in experiencing Chinese culture. Previous participants have included business leaders, university scholars, school teachers, high school choirs, and artistic clubs. These groups typically visit for 10-12 days, with each trip tailored to the group’s specific needs. While in China, American groups meet with Chinese counterparts, giving them a chance to show their own talents and interests while seeing how those same practices change and grow halfway across the world. Additionally, tours are organized around the group’s interests, from more commonly known destinations like the Forbidden City and the Great Wall to out-of-the-way locales like ancient opera houses and scenic temples. They will also experience Chinese culture through conversing with Chinese artists and the locals. Indeed, our programs strive to work with each individual group and accommodate their requests, creating an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.


We also introduce Chinese cultures to American local communities. We believe that culture allows us to connect, enrich, and empower our community. Collaborating with community cities and villages, we have presented cultural shows each year to bring authentic Chinese culture to local communities.
