This trip will provide a unique opportunity to observe and experience aspects of everyday life for a Shanghai family.  You will travel by motor coach to a residential community where you will visit a free market and see where local people shop for their food each day.  After a briefing at the Neighborhood Committee, you will break into groups of eight to visit a local family.  Enjoy the lunch with local family.  In the afternoon, you will visit an Elder People Club to interact with the residents during their leisure hours when they sing and dance.  You are welcome to join in the activities!   (Note: as it is during the spring festival, some places such as Elder People Club may not available to visit)

“I loved being able to dance with the retired citizens on this trip. Some of them even had better dance moves than us!” – Madeline R. Spring 2016 Student Voyager
