Cultural excursions provide students with an opportunity to experience the local flavor. Weekly outings, including admission fees, are coordinated on behalf of the group. These events are built into the program, and participation at each event is mandatory. With this in mind, cultural excursions are designed to fit into the program schedule, and will usually take place Monday through Thursday in the early evenings, so as not to interfere with courses or weekend travel.
Past excursions include:
- Pink dolphin watching
- Big Buddha visit
- Traditional tea tasting
- Dim sum tasting
- Horse Racing at The Hong Kong Jockey Club
- Dragon Boat Race Festival
