I’m always keen to show off China – from its natural beauty to its historical and cultural heritage and delicious food. With great patience and attention, I listen to and understand the exact requirements of each tourist. I work alongside the local travel experts in different parts of China to give you trusted advice and the best that this ancient nation has to offer.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We can help you create any type of adventure in China. Our specialities include hiking, cycling, photography, and visits to the rural areas in Southwest China including Guangxi, Guizhou, Yunnan, and Sichuan. We can also help you plan trips to the rest of China, and customize a trip that suits your needs."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I was born in Guilin, a famous tourist city in China, so I guess I was born with some travel gene. I am lucky enough to be a travel consultant of Guilin Cycling Tours, which allows me to integrate my passion for traveling into my work. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of China and Chinese culture with travelers. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My favorite destination is Tibet, a holy place of mystery. It is a place I always look forward to, and that I would like to visit again."

First time family trip to china, China - Jul 28 - Aug 8, 2018

Traveler: Fiona A. - Local specialist: Max Yang

This was an amazing first trip to China for our family. KimKim, Max, and our local guides really took the heavy lifting and stress out of planning our family trip to a destination unfamiliar to us.

This was an amazing first trip to China for our family. KimKim, Max, and our local guides really took the heavy lifting and stress out of planning our family trip to a destination unfamiliar to us.

Max was quick to respond to our initial enquiry, worked closely with us to build an itinerary tailored to our interests, and stayed in touch with our guides throughout the trip. The itinerary details were clear and well thought-out. A helpful contact list gave us additional guidance on things like tipping.

Our local guides (Candy, Beryl and Marjorie) were exceptional and particularly great with our kids (12, 8 and 5 years old). They were incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and fun. As well as guiding us through all the sites, they were conscientious to ensure we checked into hotels, and got to the right boarding gates for the train and the plane.

Our time in Beijing and Xi’an took in the top sites including the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors and more, and all lived up to our expectations. However, it was activities at a local level that made this trip extra special: in Beijing visiting local families in the Hutong to make clay model pandas, paint opera masks, and make kites; in Xi’an learning to make dumplings and Biang Biang noodles from Mrs Lee and then eating this as part of a tasty meal in her home.

The food was amazing! We enjoyed long lunches sampling lots of different Chinese food and a delicious Peking Duck dinner in Beijing, organized by Max and our guides.

We have many special memories and lots of photos that we will enjoy for a lifetime!

Thank you so very much!
