Head on an urban trekking tour through the winding alleyways of Shanghai’s quickly-disappearing Old City. See how a small business is run. Tour the Confucian temple (and take a moment to browse its second-hand book market). Visit local government offices and a few think tanks. Each term, the program offers different activities that allow you to explore Shanghai and Chinese culture.
And don’t forget the exploring that you can do on your own (or with your local roommate and their friends). Check out the brand new Shanghai Disneyland or head to Yuyintang, one of the oldest underground live music houses in China.
