IN little under two weeks, 50 primary school students from Bendigo will be exploring China.

Team China consists of staff and students from 14 schools, who will spend about 10 nights abroad.

The cities of Suzhou, Shanghai and, for the first time, the Chinese capital of Beijing feature in their itinerary.

Bendigo students have been travelling to China since 2014, with the departure on May 23 marking the fifth trip.

At a pre-departure day this week, the travellers counted the Great Wall of China and the Shanghai’s Pearl Tower among the sights they were most excited to see.
