Once every four years, college basketball programs are allowed to embark on a foreign trip and given 10 extra practices in the summer to prepare. Many power conference schools (for this post, we're looking at schools in the American Athletic Conference, ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC) chose to take advantage of the rule this summer, taking international trips for the basketball and cultural experiences.

Here's a travel guide for the power conference schools that scheduled foreign trips for this summer:
