Now that the annual back-to-school routine has been fulfilled, our thoughts now turn to the transitional period from summer to fall.  That means you’re either working on raking leaves or going some place else to enjoy the autumn fall colors.  Whatever you choose, we hope you will be enjoying yourself as you get ready to welcome the trick or treaters that mysteriously appear at your doorsteps on Halloween…there’s still plenty of time to get prepared for winter. Before you know it, you’ll be wanting to plan some kind of winter get-away to break up the monotony of enduring another Minnesota winter.  As a suggestion, we recommend you consider signing up for the 8 day visit to China that CHINAINSIGHT has organized from March 20-27, 2010.  Although the trip was originally planned to visit many historical and cultural attractions with a focus on possible business opportunities in China, we have expanded the trip so that we can accommodate separate mini groups within the group that may wish to focus on another area of interest so we will offer break-out groups of 16-20 individuals.
Such groups may choose to focus on education, health and wellness or more history and cultural activities.

In addition to meeting the needs of many individuals seeking to learn about China and possible business opportunities, we can now structure a trip to satisfy the needs of those that are interested in some of the areas we mentioned above and would be suitable as a group event for organizations like Rotary groups, business organizations, health clubs, education groups and even families planning a unique spring-break trip.

CHINAINSIGHT has selected CIAC Travel to serve as the tour operator that will handle all of the logistics for this trip.  It is a Minnesota based company that was founded in 1986 and, to our knowledge, is the oldest and largest China tour operator located in Minnesota.

For more details about this trip, please see page 16 of the paper.  We plan to hold at least one orientation meeting and will be more than happy to set up an
individual orientation for your group or organization.  Contact Greg Hugh at 952- 472-4757 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

As always, thank you for supporting CHINAINSIGHT.
