Wandering China is a community where authentic experiences of China can be shared. Providing opportunity to dig deeper than the surface and look beyond guidebook led interaction, cultural differences and language barriers. Wandering China cultivates an environment where readers can gain new perspectives and ideas, writers can accumulate experience and opportunities and partners can benefit through exposure and interaction. Wandering China operates as a neutral facilitator for information and idea sharing; encouraging an open-minded community. The vision of Wandering China is to enrich cross-cultural engagement and discover the intricacies of China through diverse perspectives.

Translators are central to the Wandering China ethos.
