An Exploratory Trip to Xian – Starting Point of Silk Road (26-30/3/2018)

To enrich students’ understanding of history and important archaeological findings as well as the economic development of Xian, our students joined a Mainland exchange programme “An Exploration into the History, Culture and Economic Development of Xian – Starting Point of Silk Road”, organized by the Education Bureau. During the programme, students visited the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Hanyangling Museum, Fortification of Xian and Bell Tower to experience and discover the unique ancient history and culture of different dynasties. They also went on an exchange with local students at Northwest University of China, and attended classes at Xi’an Gaoxin No. 1 High School. The visit to the factory of BYD Auto Company Limited further gave students a glimpse of the most recent technological development of autonomic and new energy in the 21st century. All these provided students with a deeper understanding of China’s development and transformation over centuries.
