Travel the World: Northeast China

On 13 October, we’ll be talking about Northeast China! 

Join us for this virtual event.

Postgraduate student, Jin Song, will be sharing her knowledge of Northeast China for our first ever Travel the World session. Jin will discuss what’s unique about the northeast region and how it differs from the rest of China. You will find out about the Snow Festival and why the region’s architecture and cuisine are actually more akin to Russia than China:

“I really enjoy travelling and would like to introduce a place which is dear to me, Harbin, a moderate city located in the northeast of China. My presentation will open a window through which you will find a place that is totally different from the rest of China. If you are a person who loves snow or enjoys hearty food, you must attend this event!”

All of this will be brought to you as an interactive presentation, with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have for our presenter! It’s a fantastic chance to broaden your cultural knowledge, learn something new and be inspired to visit new places in the future and engage with students from all over the world.

If you’re interested in volunteering and sharing your knowledge of a particular place; be it a country, county, city or region then please visit our volunteering page to find out more!
