KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 29 (Bernama) -- A study travel activity featuring nature and farming experiences attracted the participation of many teachers and students in local primary and secondary schools, recently.

The children, accompanied by their parents, went to the fields of Xiangjiadang to sketch and harvest rice.

With a palette in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, some students, like little painters, painted the rice in front of them. Meanwhile, other students rolled up their sleeves and harvested the rice like farmers. 

After experiencing the charm of the rice paddies and the fun of the autumn harvest, the students also explored a digital factory, and visited the Red Boat Zongzi (a glutinous rice dumpling wrapped in bamboo leaves) plant to learn about the time-honored brand's development.

In each of the study travel bases, they got to learn about the hard work of farming and farmers' fortitude through field trips.

Located in the northeast of Jiaxing, Xiangjiadang enjoys a natural endowment of 10,000 mu of nourishing farmland, 10,000 mu of water and 10,000 mu of forest. 

Since the beginning of this year, the region has paid special attention to the quality and popularity of the study travel courses to develop in-depth study tours, according to Jiaxing Xiangjiadang Regional Development and Construction Management Committee in a statement.

For example, the region has rolled out a farming experience course in the agricultural sector, including trying transplanting rice in spring and harvesting rice in autumn.

The study travel course allows students to experience the whole process of farming throughout the year, enhances their practical ability, enriches contacts with the natural pastoral life, relaxes their body and mind, cultivates the good habit of cherishing food, and makes study travel truly an educational and entertaining second classroom.
