In the coming days, students will visit the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Beijing Zoo, and Peking, Tsinghua and Renmin universities. They will also visit the Memorial Hall of War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the victory.

On Friday, members will be divided into smaller groups to continue their trip on the mainland.

Another group of students from Taiwan, in Beijing for the Sixth Beijing-Taiwan Youth Week sponsored by the Beijing Municipal Taiwan Affairs Office, said they were looking forward to seeing the Forbidden City and giant pandas in the zoo.

Tsai Yifen, 18, from Taipei, who will fly her self-made rocket in a competition with Beijing high school students on Saturday, said the event would help her make friends from the mainland.

"We have the same interests and the same language," she said. "I felt comfortable talking with them."

And the Beijing students are as cheerful as their guests.

Li Chen, 16, of the No 159 Middle School who is a students' tour guide, met Li Yiping, 16, from Taiwan. Li Chen said: "We have the same surname. We're one family."
