ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
China, once a mysterious and closed country on the other side of the world, is now as familiar as the daily headlines but it is still in many ways an enigma. Travel by photograph, film, story and lecture to this vast country. With our China scholars, study its customs, lifestyles, myths, legends, history, politics and film. Explore China's place in the modern world and prospects for the future. You'll have a genuine Chinese experience without long lines or the need to renew your passport!
