This tour gives fascinating insight into China by looking at the way it approaches anaesthesia and pain management, alongside an examination of its traditional and contemporary culture. The tour provides a practical introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), with particular focus on how acupuncture is used in anaesthesia. Along the way, experience the great cities as well as the stunning landscapes of rural China and enjoy the history and culture of this extraordinary land. At the end of the tour there is an optional extension to beautiful Guangxi Province, immortalised in Chinese art throughout the centuries. This tour, a repeat of the highly successful Anaesthesia in China tour in 2014, is led by Dr John Crowhurst
Travel from remote south west China, an area of incredible diversity in both landscapes and ethnic groups, each with its own dress, cuisine, beliefs and languages. Cross the mountains into Tibet, a land that is, above all, uplifting – both spiritually and physically. Located on the “Roof of the World”, encompassing the highest points on the earth, it offers extraordinary landscapes and an almost otherworldly sense of tranquillity. The tour is led by Jamie Veitch.
Vietnam is a popular destination with a unique historical legacy which is still in evidence today, from the junk boats in Halong Bay to the Imperial Citadel in Hue and the neo-classical French architecture of Hanoi. The tour explores the stunning landscapes of the country with ample opportunity to enjoy its rich history and wonderful cuisine. There are also a number of specialist visits and talks that provide insight into Vietnam’s military and medical history, as well as its contemporary society. There is an optional extension to Cambodia, which offers visitors one of the greatest of mankind's architectural achievements - the vast Angkor Temple complex. The tour is led by Dr Paul Luckin.
