My China Experience
Photo by Community Member @brianch82

Join us this Thursday at 2pm EST to chat about China!

On Instagram, over the next two weeks, we’re running our #MyChinaExperience photo contest and giving away a trip to China. The winner will set off for a 10 day adventure around the country, stopping in cities of your choosing along the way.

In the lead up to this photo contest, we learned all about places and experiences in China beyond the standard itinerary. From the Zhangjaijie National Forest to the wonders of Xi’an, from interior deserts to coastal paradises, China is as multifaceted a place as we have in this world. With so much to talk about, we’ll try to touch on a few different topics during this week’s #PassionPassport Twitter Chat and showcase several more on our Instagram channel during the #MyChinaExperience photo challenge.
