The Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce is hosting a 9-day trip to China for its members and guests this October. The cost of the trip is $2,099 per person and includes an array of activities. The itinerary includes everything from visiting the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, famous Buddhist temples, tea houses, and even a special roasted Beijing duck dinner to name a few.

"The China trip is a good opportunity for the members who are interested in getting a very big bang for their buck in a trip to the Orient," says Fred Boscarino, president and CEO of the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce.

The trip will be a cost-effective opportunity for the Conyers and Rockdale business community to become familiar with some of the leading cities in China and to experience their centuries old customs and history, all while witnessing first-hand their rapidly changing economy and their expanding role in the global marketplace. Members will visit cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Hangzhou with accommodations in 4 and 5-star hotels in double occupancy rooms. Single occupancy rooms are also available for an additional $450.

The trip also includes an entry ticket to the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai which opens May 1 and runs through Oct. 31, with an expected total of 70 million visitors. The expo will feature exhibits from more than 190 countries and is a great opportunity to network and meet other businessmen. The Chamber will arrange a meeting during the trip so that interested participants can meet with government officials and business leaders.

The registration deadline for the trip is July 1. Contact the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce at (770) 483-7049 or visit their Web site at for more information.
