Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute
Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute was created with a mission in mind: to conduct programs and events that promote Chinese language and culture, and to facilitate relationships between Chinese and American cultures. Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute offers corporate services such as cross-cultural and language training, helping bridge any gaps between employees who might travel between countries or consider dipping hands in a vat of honey before sealing a business deal.
Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute also hosts various tours: walking tours guide explorers through Chinatown, exploring architectural fixtures and businesses of the area, whereas food tours entreat guests to visit several restaurants and shops, sampling appetizers, entrees, and teas. After meeting at Chinatown Square by the Zodiac Animal Statues, guests will explore famous Chinatown landmarks such as The Nine Dragon Wall, St. Therese Chinese Catholic Church, the former On Leong Building, and Ping Tom Memorial Park. Tours take place in english, but can be in mandarin upon request.
