China Bamboo Trip 2020 itinerary
Bamboo Collecting Trip is organized by Newfi Bamboo Garden in France and Yunnan Bamboo Nursery in China, for bamboo lovers, bamboo nursery owners / workers, bamboo collectors, bamboo botanists, bamboo researchers and bamboo officers to know better bamboo resources and influence in China.
The first China bamboo collecting trip 2018 has brought all participants great experience on not only bamboo but also the whole social presence of China. We, as the organizer, are very much motivated to present more bamboo collecting trips in future to promote more communication and exchange among all involved parties.
The Bamboo Collecting Trip in 2020 will focus more on cold resistant bamboo species in China and bamboo production. We keep only the highly commented sites from the previous trip and add some more depth activities. It won’t cover so many destinations as the first trip, but will be a better balance of abundance and comfortableness. Meanwhile, we leave some free time for participants to add other interesting activities of their own.
