Study tours to Beijing
KILROY has a wide range of academic study visits. We put together a program that is tailored to your wishes and needs. Click the link at the bottom of the page to download the full list of possible study visits. Here are a few examples of what we offer in Beijing:
One of our popular study visits is to the preserved Hutong neighborhoods, which are old streets with low houses built around a small courtyard. The roads there are really narrow, so transportation is usually on foot or by bicycle taxi. As the need for housing grows, these charming towns have gradually been demolished to make way for high-rise buildings. Therefore, take the opportunity to see this piece of Chinese history while you have the chance. During a guided trip around the Hutongs, you will learn both about the traditional Chinese way of life and Beijing's recent development. Part of the trip also takes place in a bicycle taxi, which is a lot of fun. In some cases, it is possible to visit with a local family in one of these neighborhoods.
It is always exciting to visit a school in a foreign country. We can arrange a visit to a Chinese primary school or high school where you will get a tour. Then, there will also be the opportunity to attend classes and speak to the students afterwards.
We are also able to arrange a visit to a local farm in the area around Beijing. This could be a farm planted with rice, fruit, or vegetables. There, you will get a tour and chat with a local farmer about farming life in China.
