The East China Normal University in Shanghai is inviting overseas students at the school to take part in a cultural immersion tour on Oct 21.

The trip, which costs only 50 yuan ($7.60) for each student, will mainly focus on the picturesque landscapes in the neighboring provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

For example, the students will visit Xishan Mountain, the largest island in Taihu Lake, Jiangsu province. It is renowned for its integration of natural landscape and cultural atmosphere, such as archipelago scenery, flourishing plants and fruits, and numerous cultural relics dating back thousands of years.

Nanbei Lake in Haiyan county, Zhejiang province, is often considered the only area in China with a perfect combination of mountains, sea and lake. Its unique landscape has made it a hot destination for scholars, officials and poets since ancient times, and hence has featured in thousands of monuments and poems.

The students will be able to immerse themselves in orange season and enjoy the fruit as special orange-picking will be available.
