Like chow mein and Szechuan chicken as much as I do? Besides consuming vast amounts of the amazing local cuisine, you can volunteer in China working with giant panda bears, traveling the country and teaching English to schoolchildren, and get involved in the community at an orphanage in the rural countryside.  You can even earn a salary as a certified TEFL English teacher while you are abroad!

Having fun with the Kids!
