Long March Tour, September 2021


A Journey of Discovery with NZCFS

Offered in the year of the 100th birthday of the Communist Party of China, this tour is a commemorative exploration of the significance of the Long March and other aspects in twentieth century history that had major impact on the path to the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.

Starting in Guilin, we skip the historical starting point of the Long March in Ruijin, Jiangxi Province, and travel through Guangxi, Guizhou, Sichuan and Shaanxi to our final destination in Yan’an, the base for the CCP at the end of the Long March.

As well as visiting selected sites of historical significance along the Long March Route, we will also enjoy amazing scenic wonders, cultural performances, and food typical of the region. We will make a side trip to Baoji to visit the newly opened cave factory Baoji Industrial Heritage Museum.

Please note, while we remain optimistic that travel will re-open now that the vaccine releases are underway, we are unable to absolutely confirm this tour. We are keen to receive expressions of interest on a basis of no commitment from you or from NZCFS at this stage. Email [email protected]
