Due to the limitation of some visits, we can at maximum accept 20 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 24,000 (for Air Ticket with Tax and fuel Surcharge, Hotel Shared Room with Breakfast, Coach Arrangement, Meal Arrangement & Travel Insurance and TIC Stamp Duty, actual pricing depends on date of confirmation of detail by participants), but of course depends on your own selection of flight and accommodation etc. We are doing our best to incorporate meaningful event and visit during the trip, and also have some lunch and dinner being arranged by partners, and some lunch or dinner need to be self-paid and arrange.
