Travel study is one of the most traditional methods of studying among the Chinese. Being a portmanteau that combines the concepts of "traveling" and "studying", in Chinese history this method can be traced back to Confucius. The method of "travel study" as we know it today is a product of 20th century's relatively peaceful environment and globalization. It is not purely traveling, nor is it simply studying, rather, the method promotes relaxation while studying and learning while having fun. It facilitates integration of cultures and is an ideal way to expand one's horizon.
Pujiang, "the fairest of western Sichuan", boasts excellent natural environment, unique Liaoweng's Confucianism, Zen tea culture, and air quality that surpasses the highest national standard. It is the prime choice among urbanites for rural travel study and delivers an impeccable experience both in terms of "traveling" and "studying".
