Contact us for details on how you can easily convert your internship placement into a full Travel Program.


Travel further afield in China

 

Combine an internship with the trip of a lifetime with a CRCC Asia Travel & Internship Program. Finish an internship placement with a 21-day tour of some of the China’s most breathtaking sights and cities, including the terracotta warriors of Xi’an and the mountains of Yangshuo.

Our China Travel & Internship Programs embark from Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. You can therefore complete a 1 or 2-month internship placement in Beijing, Shanghai or Shenzhen before setting off on your trip, without the need to travel to a separate starting point. The 21-day travel portion of the Travel & Internship Program conveniently begins the day after the end of your internship placement.

 

Please choose from the options below:

 

The Travel & Internship Program is designed with flexibility in mind, so although the travel portions include a number of unmissable attractions, some of the activities are optional, and not included in the price – you can pick and choose and pay for them on the day, each day, depending on your interests.

You will travel on night trains comprised of a fully flat bed with clean linen. You will also stay in carefully chosen hostels and guesthouses – all safe and clean.

The trips’ Adventure Leaders are Chinese guides, who all speak high levels of English and Mandarin.

Our Travel & Internship Programs are provided in cooperation with The Dragon Trip.

In honour of Justin

 

In honour of our good friend and colleague, we are launching with our friends and partners at The Dragon Trip, The Justin Shapiro Internship and Travel Scholarship. The program will allow a number of young people, who may not otherwise have a chance to do so, to experience working and traveling in China.

Justin Shapiro

Justin Shapiro joined The Dragon Trip as CFO in December 2013 and moved on to join CRCC Asia as CFO in December 2015. After finishing his contract with CRCC Asia in 2017, Justin travelled the world before starting his MBA at the University of Austin in Texas. On 22nd September, Justin was cycling home in Austin when he was hit by a car, and tragically passed away on 28th September 2017.
Justin mainly worked out of CRCC Asia’s Shanghai office but also visited our regional offices in the USA and UK. On a professional level, he was exceptionally talented – extremely intelligent, meticulous and pragmatic, always committed to his teams, and consistently acting with integrity and a willingness to take on difficult challenges. He spoke fluent Mandarin and was an absolute whizz at Excel, both of which were highly valued by our teams.
Shanghai
On a personal level, Justin was a friend and confidant for many of us. He had a zest for life and more than anything a love and passion for travel, languages and people. He was interested in politics, sports, music and entrepreneurship. He always had a story to tell and was always the first person ready for a night out. He had achieved so much in his life already and we know would have gone on to do even greater things. He is very much missed by all of us, and we hope that this scholarship can preserve Justin’s legacy and help other young, ambitious and talented people to see the world and expand their horizons.

Internship & Travel Scholarship

The Justin Shapiro Internship and Travel Scholarship will be offered every summer for the next three years, which reflects the time Justin was at both CRCC Asia and The Dragon Trip. The scholarship is open to anyone over 18 years old and it includes a month-long internship in China with accommodation and work placement, a 21-day adventure tour of China after the internship has ended, and return flights to and from China. Applications will be reviewed by Justin’s father who is so proud of what his son achieved.
