Let me tell you some words about my experience.
I have Beijing University Bachelor Degree. I am originally from Xinjiang – the western part of China – famous for The Silk Road. Xinjiang is very remote China Province and when I was young, I couldn’t even dream about traveling. I remember, I has a dream that one day I can travel all around China... Today it came true. Here in Beijing I have far more opportunity to explore China. I love to travel, discover new places, culture and history. And I'm happy that I can share with you all my knowledge and experience as a Certified English Speaking Tour Guide.
See you in Beijing!
