Furnished housing is provided and includes kitchen facilities and access to laundry and internet. Bedrooms are usually doubles. Participants should be open to all types of accommodation, as housing placements are based on a number of factors such as availability, cost, number of participants and proximity to the internship site.

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.
Students are responsible for the cost of all meals.
Specific activities vary based on the student group’s interests and the local events at the time of the program. Examples include travel to Peak and Sky Terrace via peak tram, Chinese brush painting workshop, attending horse racing and night market tours, Dim Sum tours and Hong Kong Film Festival. There are typically also cross-cultural or professional development activities throughout the program and students will be provided with recommendations of supplemental activities as well.
Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
“Beyond the glass and steel of Hong Kong’s commercial persona, the city also boasts a vibrant cultural scene that features the eclectic influences of its Chinese roots, colonial connections and a wondrous pool of homegrown talent. Here, you’re just as likely to find yourself applauding at Asia’s top film festival as joining in dawn taichi or reading the couplets of a local poet to the drumbeat of a dragon boat. Culture could also mean indie music under the stars, a classy art walk, your first Cantonese opera – not to mention the exhibitions and events staged year-round at the many museums and concert halls.” – From Lonely Planet Hong Kong
