China Return Tour

Hi Grace, All is well here in Hong Kong. The train ride went well and we were met at the gate by your driver.  We are in a great hotel and the sites are beautiful. The orphanage was so bitter sweet.  The children were mostly special needs children and it was so sad to see.  But the nannies have a special way with them for sure.  As a matter of fact, two of Jaida’s nannies had..."

Frequently Asked Questions About Adoption Return Tours

To plan a heritage tour to China, the adoptive family should have the required documents for orphanage visits, and simultaneously be mentally prepared.

The required documents – Basically, you need only present the valid passports and the adoption certificate. Once you send the request to China Culture Tour, one of our travel consultants, with much experience in assisting adoptive children returning to China, will offer you the step-by-step guide.

The name of the orphanage – With the official name of the orphanage, even without the contact information, we can get you to the right place smoothly. But please advise us if you would like to meet someone special, for instance, your child’s previous nanny or a retired director.

It will be a culture enriching trip, and more importantly, an emotional journey and a root-seeking journey. Make sure your family is ready, especially the child. Help him/her to have a general idea about the adoption, about China and about the places you’re going to visit.

Consider preparing some small gifts for the orphanage kids. You can still expert tens of and even hundreds of infants and children in the orphanage. They will be very grateful and comforted if you could bring some small gifts, such as books, pens and other school supplies. It is voluntary, and definitely not mandatory.

1. A heritage trip allows the adoptive family to focus on the orphanage visits - meet up with the orphanage director, staff and children, learn inside story of adoption, wander around the neighborhood and the city and wherever possible they are interested in.

2. Explore several of China’s best cultural and scenic destinations such as Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Guilin and Shanghai. Admire China’s unique heritages (e.g. the Great Wall and Forbidden City) and have great insight into China’s history, culture and customs.

3. Experience the real life in China, in both the megacities and small villages – the adopted children will then obtain their own understanding of China.

4. Participate in cultural immersion lessons and activities, to learn traditional Chinese culture and art, and improve their Chinese language skills.
