With foreign nationals and native speakers, gain an understanding and appreciation of the heritage and history of these different nations, and their quest to modernize into the 21st century. Explore the Buddhist faith as you visit a local Buddhist Temple. Enjoy other highlights such as folk music and dancing presentations by authentic artisans and performers, and demonstrations of Chinese cooking while enjoying a multi-cultural feast to give you a taste of a variety of Asian cuisines.
