Extraordinary Knowledge and Hospitality -- a Tour That Goes Way Beyond the Usual
Feb 2019 • Friends
I have always been curious about the historic and ongoing roles of the Communist Party in China's evolution from economic and political basket case to emergence as a world power. I received the equivalent of a quickie college course on this subject from Ms. Lily Wang on her Red Route Tour -- along with extraordinary hospitality -- and a lot of fun!

We visited the place where it all started in 1921 in Shanghai -- at the First Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. This fascinating museum -- a citadel of Communist Party leadership -- is, by the way, located in what has become a model of Chinese -style capitalism -- the upscale neighborhood of coffee houses and cafes known as Xintiandi.

We learned what happened at the Congress. But of even more importance to me was the historical context Ms. Wang provided. She explained in knowledgeable and entertaining fashion how the Communist Party built a movement that went on to play a major role in defeating Japanese invaders in the 1930s and 1940s and thereafter won a civil war that brought the Chinese Communist Party, led by Mao Zedong, to national power with its capital in Beijing. Ms. Wang also explained the various social and economic movements such as The Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution and the Opening Up policy to the West. She provided fascinating insights into the unprecedented economic growth of China since -- no place better demonstrated than in Shanghai -- the country's commercial center.

In short, our group came away from this tour with a much expanded understanding of how and why China -- led by the Chinese Communist Party -- became the world's second largest economy in about 40 years -- and why and how it has done this by blending socialism and capitalism.

The members of our group agreed The Red Route tour was far and away the most enlightening that we took in China -- and it inspired us to take another tour with Ms. Wang -- this one about the great religions of China. This tour helped to dispel a lot of confusion about Chinese culture. What we learned from Ms. Wang was that the Chinese Communist Party -- indeed, virtually all institutions in China, are rooted in philosophical, spiritual and religious traditions and values of China that date back thousands of years.

We visited Daoist, Buddhist and Confucian temples in Shanghai where Ms. Wang explained how each deeply influences daily life in China today. I'll share a couple of moments that illustrate the depth of this influence -- and the humor and wisdom of Ms. Wang. In one case, a member of our group expressed concern that we were running a little late on our schedule, Ms. Wang advised him to "go with the flow. Relax. Calm down," She explained this was how a Daoist would handle the moment, At another point, Ms. Wang settled a debate about where our group should have dinner that evening. Ms. Wang turned to me and said, "You are the most senior person here -- what would you advise.." Well, thanks a lot," I said. Ms. Wang pointed out she was, in the Confucian manner, showing special politeness and respect for the elderly..We all laughed.

A tour with Ms. Wang is not to be forgotten. A rare blending of wisdom, insight, humor and fun. By the end, you feel like family -- and that you have found a new and special friend in Ms. Wang.
