Not having much time to research China prior to the trip, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was amazed at the preserved culture and traditions in China. Vicki and Joy, our tour guides, exposed us to a great deal of Chinese history, entertainment and culinary delights. They were also very thankful to our group for helping their local economy! Our business visits to different multinational companies emphasized how China has flourished in the global markets and what potential it provides to the rest of the world. I was also amazed beyond words at Shanghai’s sophisticated modern architecture, night life, and friendly atmosphere. As much as I have traveled around the world, I can certainly state that I returned from this trip with a great appreciation of Chinese culture and with an appetite to return to China and be a part of their healthcare revitalization.
