Suggested itinerary for School groups
Students of Chinese philosophy will have a lot to take in on a school tour to China. One of the most dominant schools of thought, Confucianism, came about during the Qing dynasty, and is still held in great reverence today, and this new tour from Travelbound is the ideal way to place the teachings and rules of Confucius within the context that they sprang from and continue to inform.
Confucius lived most of his life in the town of Qufu, and following his death his home was turned into a temple. It’s a majestic site to behold, being the second-largest complex in China after the Forbidden City. The Kong family mansion, where the great philosopher’s family once lived, is built in traditional Chiense style and worth a visit.
Nearby is Mount Tai, one of China’s Five Great Mountains - holding a significant place in the Taoist and Buddhist religions. Many temples and cultural relics dot the landscape. Several gods and goddesses, as well as the ghosts of former emperors who made frequent pilgrimages here, are said to inhabit the mountain. The summit can be reached by foot and cable car and affords superlative views of the surrounding countryside and nearby cities.
Another defining legacy of the Qing Dynasty was the Great Wall of China, around 21,000 miles in all, and constructed of manmade and natural fortifications that broadly follow the southern edge of Inner Mongolia.
The Wall is actually composed of many small sections joined together, and took around 2000 years to be completed. Visible from space, and with many sections still intact, even a short walk on the Wall can never be forgotten. There is a section just outside the city that is popular with school trips to Beijing due to its preservation and accessibility.
