Final payment extended for low fares to China


Have you ever wanted to try authentic dumplings and spare ribs, take on the historic 4,000-mile-long Great Wall of China or stand face to face with the mighty, ancient Terracotta Warriors?

The Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce has extended their payment deadline from Feb. 3 to Friday, Feb. 14, for members of the community to travel with the Chamber to the Far East at discounted prices.

“The good news is our China trip deadline has been extended so people will still have time to sign up to join us on the trip of a lifetime. It’s not too late to sign up. Just send over your registration form, a $200 deposit, a copy of your passport and let the Chamber know if you have any questions,” said Chamber President Fred Boscarino. “This really is a great way to take an international vacation. There will be planned activities and plenty of free time for sightseeing and shopping. “We want to expose people to the commerce and culture. ”

You are invited to join the Chamber in discovering China’s culture, food and history with travelers from diverse backgrounds, coming from states such as Georgia, New York, New Jersey and even California.

DeKalb County resident Pearl M. Parker took China off her bucket list after going with the Chamber.

“Before reading about the Chamber’s trip in On Common Ground News, China was just a dream of mine. China was somewhere I always wanted to visit and at the prices the Chamber offered, you just couldn’t resist,” said Parker, whose sister, Iona Stuart, traveled from California to join her and the Chamber on the trip to China. “The trip gave us a time to bond on a whole new level. It was so exciting. I encourage anyone who wants to see China to go with the Chamber.”

The Chamber is making the nine-day trip available through steeply discounted rates it receives as a Chamber. 

The trip, scheduled April 7 – 15, includes round-trip airfare from JFK in New York, dinners, a dumpling lunch, five-star hotel stay and tours with English-speaking guides for $2,649 per person, double occupancy. Single rooms are available for an additional $495.      

The trip costs include U.S. departure taxes and fuel surcharge, a savings of $495, according to the Chamber. 

This year mark’s the Chamber’s fifth trip to China. The trip includes airfare visits to Beijing, Xiau and Shanghai as well.    

New this year: Because the business group is using Asia Getaway, Inc., the Chamber’s China trip cost will include a full-day excursion to the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” the Terra Cotta Warriors Museum. The trip was offered at an additional price in the past.
