About Me

She has a deep understanding of Beijing’s culture, history, humanities, cuisines and has her appreciation. More importantly, she has her take in the policies, urbanization, education, healthcare reforms in China. If you want to gain a more macro picture of Beijing, even in China, take Yi’s trips!

My Experiences

I was born in a village in Hunan province. During the travel, I love to share my stories in the village, which is very different from the metropolitan life. I will let you know about the pastoral part of China and also tell you stories about the idyllic part of China. 
I'm warm and sensitive and I have two kids myself, thus I can take care of children's need well. Many visitors who travel with their family all give me 5-star comment. If you take kids when you travel and want a responsible guide to take care of him/her, I'm the one to go to.
