We thoroughly enjoyed this retreat, very close to Beijing and yet it felt like being much further away! A lovely tranquil setting. For those who have no experience of Taichi or Qigong this is a great introduction and you surely will be inspired to learn more. For people who already have some knowledge and experience there is the opportunity to advance your skills. Under the expert guidance of Master Ni you can learn more techniques to improve your emotional and physical wellbeing. Chinese culture, even daily living, is deeply rooted in the principles of Taoist philosophy, as is Chinese medicine. Attention to diet, lifestyle, exercise and emotional wellbeing are important in maintaining health. Taking a break from our practice we enjoyed drinking Chinese tea, whilst Master Ni willingly answered our questions. Meanwhile Mayin took great care in preparing delicious, nutritious meals for us, using fresh, local, seasonal food. We could not stop eating! We are frequent visitors to Beijing and often arrange travel and workshops through CCC. We know they will look after us well, pay attention to our comfort, and they clearly put a lot of thought and effort into arranging these very special experiences. We would highly recommend this retreat. Master Ni and Mayin made us feel so welcome and put so much into making these two days such an interesting, enjoyable and valuable experience. Definitely the highlight of our trip this time.

We met our guide Vincent at the train station. He had organized the whole trip for us, including train tickets, driver, and tickets into the Monastery. He was very kind to us, and had answers to all our questions. He even discussed buddhism with us which helped our understanding of it all. He got us a Master to guide us around inside the monastery and functioned as a translator. We observed the evening song, drum and bell ritual, and did partake in the morning chanting, which was an inspiring and beautiful experience. The Stone Village was facinating and very impressing as well. If you want to experience something entirely different than the common tourist attractions, you shoud definitely check this tour out!

My husband and I only had 4 days in China to see the sights, Iris from ccc arranged a schedule which allowed us to see all the main sites in both Beijing and Xi An , including flights to Xi an. We were picked up in a limo with a guide each day and had a personalized service which meant we could see everything and still feel rested: we went to a portion on the Great Wall with hardly any other tourists, for example, and we saw much more than the Terracotta warriors in Xi An. Our guides, Rocky in Beijing and Julie in Xi An were fabulous and flexible . I highly recommend this personalized approach if you really want to see a lot in a short space of time, and don’t want to be with a hoard of other tourists.

I had the most wonderful experiences on the CCC Hakka Tulou tour - excellent organisation, knowledgeable and thoughtful guide, safe transport and a really great and respectful group of international travellers. I so appreciated the opportunity to learn more about the cultural heritage of the Hakka people, and their humble way of life. Illuminating and inspiring. And all enabled through the truly thoughtful and excellent CCC. Thank you.
