April is a beautiful season for traveling and picnic. The rising temperature and blooming flowers pointed the way to a new spring and a new future. As a team of enjoying beer and skittles, how can we waste this precious time!
On April 13th, SII organized a spring trip to Qingcheng Mountain. We took foreign interns in Chengdu and some students from local universities to enjoy the golden time of the whole year.
Relax from the internship in China by taking a spring trip!
The mountain we visited – Qingcheng Mountain is located in the west of Chengdu city. It’s one of the ancient cradles of Taoism. This mountain has numerous Taoist temples and sites along the paths to its peak.
We chose the anterior mountain because it takes less efforts to get to top of the mountain. There were many tourist group gathered at the gate when we arrived there. It was so cool walking in the tree-lined boulevards. After buying the tickets, we started to explore this mysterious area.
The anterior mountain is famous for its beautiful scenery, numerous cultural and historic sites. We saw many Taoism temples along the way. It took 3 hours to get to the top, there is a tower on the top of mountain where we can see the full view of the mountain. Standing on the top of the mountain, you can feel peace in your heart. You will find so much fun during your internship in China.
Taste Chinese Barbecue in the ancient town – Jiezi ancient town
It was 5:00pm when we got down the mountain, we took bus to an ancient town near Qingcheng Mountain to have dinner: Chinese barbecue.
Chinese barbecue is a little different from what you had at Europe or America. If you do an internship in China, Please remeber take your chance to taste it. We chose vegetables, beef, chicken, pork, many types of food to put at the table side first. After serving the charcoal fire, we put the food on the hot grill and turned the meet until it evenly cooked, then we can dip in the cayenne pepper or peanut powder.
After dinner, we went to a bar in the ancient town, enjoyed the night view in this beautiful day. We stayed in the town for one night and went back to Chengdu the next day.
Starting your internship in China with SII, you will make many new friends from different countries, get to know the Chinese life style and spend your golden time in this peaceful and beautiful season.
