Due to the limitation of some visits, we can at maximum accept 45 people to join trip. Seats are limited and will be allocated on First Come First Serve basis.

The trip is a self-paid trip and from our experience, the expenditure per person is about HKD 15,000+ but of course depends on your own selection of flight and accommodation. From the tentative program itinerary, we are doing our best to in-corporate meaning event and visit during the trip, and also have some lunch and dinner being arranged by sponsors.
