Xiamen and Hong Kong - A Vacation While Teaching English Abroad

By: David Chen

Going from a small town in rural Montana to the world’s largest nation can really change one’s perspective.

Though, having the opportunity to travel through Fujian Province as well as China’s special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau was regardless an absolutely wonderful experience, and I really have to credit International TEFL Academy for helping me achieve this opportunity. At the time, it was Spring Festival, the time of year in China when everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone, goes back to their hometown to see friends and family again. I had ended up doing the same, and I stayed with my hometown family for about a week. Honestly, it was kind of boring, though I did somehow imbibe a very large amount of rice wine. Afterwards, I started my solo trip by going first to Xiamen.
