Farm Tour to Cuba
Farm Tour to China
30th October - 15th November 2018

The pace with which agriculture has developed is in line with the amazing growth of all aspects of modern China.

In the huge farming communes most of the work was done by hand - corn cut with sickles and threshed by flails - nowadays they operate with modern harvesting machinery.

Despite all these changes, there are still parts of China where rice is traditionally grown on terraces, ducks are tended by young boys and the small towns have retained their more leisurely lifestyles.  The contrasts are still there, with a good mix of the modern agricultural methods and a glimpse at the old traditional ways deep in the countryside.

 

Of course, no tour to China would be complete without a visit to The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the famous Terracotta Warriors and the Giant Pandas.
