What can I eat in Hunchun?
Meals in Hunchun are very inexpensive. A Continental or Korean breakfast is provided at your hotel. Lunch and dinner are eaten with your group (usually in a restaurant). There are many Korean, Chinese, a few Russian dine-in and American style fast food restaurants. Meals such as hand-drawn noodles, hot pot, and dumplings are readily available. Some people purchase food at a market.
What are the weekend meeting times?
On Sundays, you’re encouraged to visit a Chinese church, Korean church, or a special needs church. As a team, we meet on Sundays at 4:00 for Bible study, prayer, & Communion.
When do we have free time?
Each week, a typical day begins with group devotions and breakfast, followed by the day’s work assignment. If you are working at the ranch, you will take a sack lunch for meals. The workday will end between 5:00-5:30pm. The evenings are ‘free time’ for group activities, (shopping, sight-seeing, eating out, etc.) Please note the ‘free time’ schedule is subject to change based on ‘needs’ communicated between your Team Leader and CRAM Worldwide.
What can we do in our free time?
What you can do in free time depends on the season. There are a few night markets and several Chinese/Korean/Russian souvenir stores. We can take teams to sightsee at historic places such as the China-North Korea border, the China-Russia border, the Broken Bridge, and the Tumen River area (where you can see the China-North Korea border and purchase souvenirs). Extra spending money is required for these trips.
If your team wants to visit Beijing or Changbai Shan (a famous volcanic lake), we suggest that you set aside two or three days after your work with CRAM to visit these sites.
Please note the costs provided are ‘estimates’ for the purpose of helping you prepare for your trip, actual costs will probably vary from the amounts noted.
