Asian Perspectives

Asian Perspectives

Give your students an Asian Perspective. China. Japan. Korea. Their religious heritages include Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and were centuries in the making, often prompted by political and territorial power struggles. All three have lived through dynamic economic growth and change—in many cases, at a staggering pace—and today struggle with integrating industrialization with tradition. From Japan’s ethereal Mount Fuji, to the hundreds of tiny, bustling fresh food markets in Korea, to China’s inspiring People’s Square, select which Asian perspectives destination intrigues you most. Then come back to compare a second and a third!

A chance to soak it all in A chance to soak it all in

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it!

Reviews and Comments

What our teachers and travelers say about our Asian trips?

“This was the 2nd time I’ve travelled as an assistant teacher with WorldStrides to China. On this trip we visited Beijing, Chengdu, Tibet, and Shanghai. This trip was even better than the first! The accommodations were first rate. The tour guides were friendly and informative. Each day was jam packed with activities and I have no doubt our students received a great value for the money they invested.”
—Shawn, Texas

“The China tour to Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai was outstanding. The LEAP activities were favorites with the students, who swapped emails with the Chinese students they got to spend time with. Xi’an was a highlight with a visit to the Terra Cotta warriors and a great hotel with an excellent location. Both the student and adult participants were exposed to a culture so vastly different from ours in the US that brought us all an unforgettable, enlightening, and enriching cultural experience.
—Sue, Pennsylvania

“This was our 6th WorldStrides trip and we definitely recommend traveling with this company because the people are courteous and professional, the itineraries are both educational and fun, the guides are excellent, and our experiences make lasting memories. This trip to Vietnam opened up perspectives and the trip to Angkor Wat and the elephant ride around Angkor Thom satisfied our group’s curiosity and sense of adventure. Thanks!”
