My First Trip
My First Trip is a collection of essays in which authors recount their maiden excursions into and out of China. The project began in January 2011 when Kin-ming Liu, then an editor at the Hong Kong Economic Journal, invited diplomats, reporters, and scholars to write about their first visits to the People’s Republic of China. We have republished a selection of the Journal’s resulting “My First Trip to China” series below. In its new incarnation, the collection will also include tales of Chinese voyages to the United States.
