Take a look at our CIA Global Cuisine and Cultures trip to China! Our professor, Dr. Willa Zhen, with the help of several guides, toured us around the large cities of Chengdu and Beijing, making stops along the way in Yibin and Zigong. We prepped for this trip by completing required readings and discussion boards over the last 15 weeks. After getting our visas and passports, we took a 14-hour flight to other side of the world. The trip was a thrilling experience exposing us to new and exciting cuisine and culture, and there was plenty of awe and wonder along the way.
