Journey to China and Taiwan

Starting April 7, 2016, 18 Friendship Force members from 4 Florida clubs traveled to mainland China for 2 unforgettable weeks and then followed with a one week home stay with the FF of Greater Taipei club.

This was an amazing adventure including a 4-day Yangtze River Cruise with stops in Shanghai, Xi'an, many villages along the Yangtze and finally days in Beijing followed by a flight to Taipei, Taiwan where we were met by an extremely fun-loving FF club. We were treated like royalty in Taiwan. Frank Hsaio was the host ED and made us all feel very welcome. They love to eat amazing food and sing and dance.
