There will be a lot of shopping and sightseeing in Shanghai. Also.

After Shanghai, we will catch another fast train to the Capital of China, Beijing.

While in Beijing, we will visit the Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Great Wall.

On our second day, we will visit Hutong, Drum and Bell Tower, Forbidden City and Ming Tombs.

In 2012, the skies around Beijing were a beautiful blue and the air was clean, believe it or not.

This will be the School’s sixth trip to China.

In 2012, we started in Beijing and headed south to Henan and northern Shaolin Temple.

From there, we flew to Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province.

We traveled around Guangdong Province for several days and finished our trip in Hong Kong.

This trip, we will predominately travel from Australia, to Singapore, to Taiwan.

After Taiwan, we will travel along the East Coast from Southern China travelling north to Shanghai and Beijing.

The trip in 2015 will cover around 2000kms around China plus travelling around Taiwan and Singapore.

In the previous trips, we spent all our time in Hong Kong and travelling around Guangdong.

We visited wing chun schools and doing demonstrations and Chi Sao with the Chinese practitioners.

After the Communists takeover of China in 1949, a lot of martial arts practitioners fled or left China.

They left for a life of freedom in other Countries such as Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.

The 2015 China trip will concentrate on wing chun kung fu outside of China being Singapore and Taiwan.
