Tour to China – Please note the new date

Explore nursing and healthcare in China alongside a full cultural programme visiting China’s great sites on a 10-night tour

17-27 October 2021

We fly directly to Beijing where we visit the Temple of Heaven, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace and, of course. Tiananmen Square.  In the evening we might choose to see the Beijing Acrobats.

An internal flight takes us to Xi’an where we see the Terracotta Warriors, the old markets, some medical facilities and temples.  The evening option here is the Tang Dynasty Theatre.

The famous bullet train will take us to Nanjing, the old capital.  The Nightingale Fellowship has been honoured to have been invited to open the Nanjing Nightingale Nursing College and we will also visit a hospital of Chinese Medicine and a community clinic to learn about nursing in China.   There are the Ming Dynasty walls and tombs to see, followed by a river cruise.

Our last city is Shanghai where we can experience the elegant Bund and the Yu gardens.  A Farewell dinner in the French Concession has been arranged for our last night together.

Tour to Florence postponed until September 2021 – In the steps of Florence Nightingale

 15-18 September 2021

Given the ongoing concerns and uncertainty about COVID-19, after much deliberation and regular communication, the Nightingale Fellowship with Jon Baines Tours have decided to postpone the October 2020 visit to Florence until September 2021 (15th-18th September 2021).  The itinerary and accommodation will remain the same and, best of all, the tour prices remain unchanged.  Please book early to avoid disappointment.  This tour remains very popular with those who registered for the 2020 tour and have already transferred their bookings to 2021.
