About Me

I graduated with an English travel major from Shanghai Normal University and have spent the last 8 years doing my dream job as a tour guide. In my spare time, I love to listen to Kunqu opera and take long walks around the parks and gardens of Shanghai and Suzhou. I also love art and am very well-versed in Shanghai’s burgeoning art scene. Out of all my hobbies, calligraphy is what I am most passionate about, and I spend time every day practicing. Over the course of my career I have led groups of all sizes and budgets, so can accommodate almost any kind of tour. If what you seek is a highly professional and experienced tour guide, I guarantee you that there are none better.

My Experiences

In my 8 years of experience, I organized several large tours including the “100M Yale Students and Teachers China visit,” creating all itinerary and leading all the guides. I have a long history of developing fantastic rapport with my clients and catering my tours to their specific interests and needs. I have also led tours for a number of high-profile foreigners including Marissa Mayer, the former YAHOO CEO, Metallica, the Rock band, and many more high-level executives from fortune-500 companies. I am an expert in Shanghai, Suzhou, and Hangzhou, and can lead tours to many other destinations in the Eastern Yangtze region of China.

I love to challenge myself so that I can continuously improve myself as a guide. I’m currently working on a journalism masters degree from Fudan, one of the top universities in China, so that I can begin to write and share my intimate knowledge of these amazing Chinese cities with the world. I’m also particularly fascinated by Jewish culture and history, and can lead those interested in an in-depth tour of Shanghai’s Jewish ghetto.

Oh, by the way, I’m also a foodie! If you want help putting together a walking food tour for Shanghai, just let me know. I can accompany you to explore with my secret specialty.
