CLE's local trips and events
CLE frequently arranges local trips and events for students. All events focus on Chinese Cultural sites and activites. Each semester we aim to arrange a trip or event every 3 to 4 weeks. Some of our more popular destinations include:
The Great Wall, or Chang Cheng, has become the symbol of China, and enjoys a high reputation all over the world. It is listed as one of the World Cultural Heritage sites by UNESCO as well as one of the New Seven Wonders of the world.
The Forbidden City (Gu Gong), or The Palace Museum, was originally built as the residence of the emperors in the Ming dynasty.
Temple of Heaven
The Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan) was built for worshipping and offering sacrifices by the emperors, who were believed to be the only people that could directly communicate with Heaven.
The Summer Palace is the largest royal garden in Beijing, China.
The Llama Temple (Yong Hegong) is not only the biggest, but also most perfectly preserved temple devoted to Tibetan Buddhism in Beijing.
Chinese Acrobatics is one of the oldest performing arts dating between 475 and 211 B.C. It is an interactive art form, combining music, choreography, and costumes.
With a history of 200 years, Peking Opera has been the most influential of all operas in China. This refined art form is a blend of singing, dancing, dialogue, action and acrobatics.
