Travel The World
The World Affairs Council of Oregon partners with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia to offer unique travel tours to fascinating destinations around the world.
The World Affairs council of Philadelphia began its extraordinary offering of educational tours with our landmark trip to the People's Republic of China in 1977, when we were among the first westerners to enter this fascinating country. Since then, the Council has designed frequent trips around the globe, visiting such diverse locations as Vietnam, Egypt, the Netherlands, Morocco, Antarctica, and Cuba, plus locations like the Pacific Northwest and the Antebellum South here in the U.S.
The trips the Council sponsors offer all the highlights of touring plus access to political leaders and other local experts who give behind the scenes views and briefings that make our trips special and unique.
