I would go again! It was a great introduction to China including the big destinations I always wanted to see. The loveliest surprise was the morning in the park with all the Chinese people dancing, exercising and playing games and instruments. I could have stayed for hours.Riana Haslund, ‘69 – UW China, Tibet & the Yangtze, 2009
