Want to learn more? Mark your calendars to attend an orientation at the Edmonds Historical Museum on April 13th at 5:30 p.m, led by tour operator Leo Liu. Citslinc International, has been bringing American groups to China since 1995. Specializing in delivering a first-class experience at an affordable price, Citslinc provides seasoned, English-speaking guides, modern buses, and accommodations along with meals in four- and five-star hotels and restaurants, all for $2,500.00.  This is not the first time Citslinc has brought Edmonds citizens to China — they also operated the highly-acclaimed 2014 tour sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber — so they not only know China, but they know Edmonds travelers.

In addition, the group will be accompanied by experienced China traveler Valerie Claypool – who has been on the last two Edmonds Chamber trips and will be returning this year.

There are still some spaces left, so if you’ve always wanted to visit China, here is your chance.

Be sure to attend the April 13 orientation at the Edmonds Historical Museum, 118 5th Ave. N., in downtown Edmonds. You’ll meet the tour operators, learn more about the itinerary and have the chance to ask questions.
