Touring Guangzhou

March 25, 2016

The Punahou Orchestra students continued to tour Guangzhou, starting off the morning by visiting the Affiliated High School of South China Normal University or HSFZ (an abbreviation of the Chinese name). Everyone attended various English classes at the school and was amazed by the level of proficiency that the HSFZ students, in the equivalent of 10th grade in America, had. After listening to the lesson given by their teacher, all of the students had time to talk and mingle with one another in English. Many made new friends and exchanged gifts with the HSFZ students, in addition to exchanging email addresses and social media accounts.

The Punahou students also visited Litchi Bay and Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, both very famous tourist spots in Guanzhou with lots of stores for buying gifts. After a long day of walking around and meeting new people, everyone returned to the hotel to rest up in anticipation of the next day, in which their final performance of the trip will take place.
