The Shanghai Internship Program provides fun and exiting weekend activities in order for you to make the most out of your time living in China. Although you will be working during the day, these events aim to give you full advantage of what the city has to offer. Even though your internship is the most important, it’s essential that you take advantage of living abroad. The events below are just a few examples of previous activities:
Spend a day trip or a weekend in a nearby city such as Hangzhou, Suzhou, Nanjing or Zhujiajiao and explore China’s culture and history.
