Back from another amazing trip! (my 4th with C R McPhail). China is the most amazing place. Ron and his team really turned it on with the first Fonterra Farmers trip. The hotels were beautiful – we kept saying they couldn’t get better but they did!
A lovely mix of farming venues and sight seeing – the Great Wall, Terracotta Army and then the cruise down the Yangtze to see the 3 Gorges Dam.. mind blowing and should be on everyones bucket list. So many highlights, too many to mention but the food, the people and the culture plus many friends made on the trip.. a lifetime of memories.
China for Fonterra Shareholders! A unique opportunity to see and learn about Fonterra’s investment in China. Visit one of the Fonterra dairy farms and meet with key Fonterra staff in Beijing and Shanghai. Also participate in our longest running tour (since 1996), which has never ceased to amaze travellers on this exciting adventure.
Explore China to see some major agricultural developments across this vast country and marvel at the extraordinary feats of engineering and ingenuity that have defined this ancient culture. Visit many of the cultural highlights including the Terracotta Warriors and Horses in Xian, The Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and enjoy a luxury Yangtze River Cruise. Stops on the side of the road to talk with local farmers are a unique feature of this tour. Be entertained with the spectacular Tang Dynasty show and an incredible Acrobatic display.
