The recent China Study Tour for ten William Angliss Institute Diploma of Tourism students provided a great deal of excitement and the opportunity to fully experience the best sights and attractions in three major Chinese cities including Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.

 The tour started in Hong Kong with a trip to Ocean Park to see the pandas with a ferry crossing of Victoria Harbour and late night light show of Hong Kong's buildings.

HK Disneyland was amazing with the Disney parade and fireworks plus the roller coaster rides. A special tour of HK Polytechnic University Tourism department included a surprise meeting with Jackie Chan plus a tour of the Icon Hotel, a five star hotel connected to the university which provides student hotel training. A visit to the HK Museum of History and eating traditional Yum Cha food enabled the students to experience HK cuisine and culture.

The mega metropolis of Shanghai was eye opening for the travel group with a tour to the second highest building in the world; the Shanghai's World Financial Centre Building was truly out of this world. The walking tour of the Bund, Shanghai Museum, Yu Yuen Gardens plus the Lama Temple provided interesting insights into Chinese history plus shopping for the girls.

Tourism teacher Adrian Hart said their visit to the Sovereign Hill Office for a presentation with the International Marketing Manager Jessica Xue provided lots of information about wholesale travel in China.

"At the William Angliss International office in Shanghai, Gary Dick delivered a magnificent presentation on Shanghai and China highlighting the career opportunities in the travel industry for our Tourism group dealing with Chinese tourists," he said.

"Beijing was truly the best travel experience for everyone. The trip to the Great Wall at Yinshanling was breath taking and equally spectacular was our tour of the Palace Museum or the Forbidden City plus the Summer Palace."

The thirteen day tour was an unforgettable experience for the ten Diploma of Tourism students and extremely memorable for the Tourism teachers Rhiannon Madden and Adrian Hart. Thank you to George Vajda WAI Retail Travel and Helen Wong's Tours for the travel package provided to the group.
