One great thing about studying abroad in Shanghai is that it can be incredibly cost-effective to travel to other parts of the country, thanks to high speed bullet trains and youth hostels in tourist hot spots! Don't believe us? Champlain College student Lauren and 7 of her friends were able to spend a weekend outside of Shanghai in Huangshan and Hangzhou for less than $150 per person. She breaks down her planning and the costs in this new vlog, so definitely check it out for helpful advice on how to plan a similar trip when you study abroad in China!
