Craig's China Trip

Posted on 04/29/2016

In September of 2015, President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping announced that 2016 is set to be the US-China Tourism Year.

I received an exclusive invitation from the CNTA (Chinese National Tourism Board) to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime trip highlighting the tourism year in China. This March and into April, I spent 14 days and traveling over 5,000 miles within the mainland, I visited six different UNESCO World Heritage Sites, eighteen various historical sites, and a plethora of authentic experiences while being immersed in the local culture.

I stayed in a plethora of towns and cities, from the edge of the Gobi Desert along the Silk Road, deep in the treacherous Jinshan Mountain Range, all the way to the Yellow Sea and East China Sea. Stay tuned to hear more about each journey, and see how amazing China really is!
