The Story behind this trip:

We have some passionate paragliders on our team of travelers.  True to the spirit of Travelers Society, we created a trip to the best paragliding site near Shanghai.  When we were working on the itinerary, we knew we needed to give you the best experience possible, which means we added even more fun to the mix.  We included a flying lanterns show, which we had done on a trip to Thailand a few years before.  Also, when scouting the area, we discovered an awesome ancient town to visit, and a really cool hike….No wonder this is one of our best selling adventures!!
