WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?
The Frontier-China Intro Week is designed to help integrate travellers into Chinese culture whilst at the same time enabling you to meet other like-minded travellers before setting off on your adventure.
This project offers you a chance to get to know this beautiful Southern province of China in an intimate way, submerging you in the local community and culture.
Whatever plans you have, our cultural awareness week will give you a unique insight into local traditions and a chance to make new friends and travel companions, enabling you to make the most of your time in this incredible part of the world.
You will be based in the heart of Fengyan Village, 140km from Guilin City in Guangxi Province. It's an amazing region full of traditional Chinese houses and karst mountain scenery. You will experience traditional Chinese village life with incredible views of the surrounding countryside.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
Your project will ensure that you get the most out of your travel through China. Once you’ve arrived and met your fellow travellers, your cultural lessons will begin. To help you settle in you will be given basic language lessons, take part in traditional practices such as paper crafting or calligraphy and educated in the customs of Chinese society. Visits into the village will allow you to meet the locals, make friends and gain an insight to life in Fengyan. Trips to the temple will give you a taste of the history of China and the influences on the development of its national identity. Make sure to have a taste of the local food on offer, and then try your hand at cooking some dishes of your own in culinary classes.
