"Travel China with a real traveller!"
This is Echo from Yangzhou, I am a freelance writer and interpreter. My subject is Communication&Journalist, good at writing&photograph. I've been worked with foreigners for 6 years and experienced in communicating with them.
Although I'm not a professional tour guide, I'm a REAL TRAVELLER and I know China well. I'd love to show you a classical China with traditional folks and history; and also a modern China with brilliant city life.
I love traveling and enjoy my journey every time, I've visited many places in China, not just the tourism stuffs, I know the real local life and that is the most interesting part you shouldn't miss. I love Chinese culture and I'm willing to share them with you.
In the other hand, I'm an experienced business assistant. Let me know if you are coming for conferences or factory visiting.
I'm current living in Yangzhou and Nanjing, but I'm free to go other cities. I also used to lived in some other cities such as Beijing, Dalian, Suzhou... so I can help you in other cities beside Yangzhou and Nanjing.

Reviews of Echo Hu
Before attending an economic seminar in Beijing/Hongkong I had three days available in Beijing. In these days I hoped to get an understanding of modern living in China as well as seeing some of the main historical attractions. As an independent minded traveler I wanted an independent minded and well informed guide who could show me places off the tourist track and with whom I could discuss a range of themes. I wanted to walk around in the old city, eat at restaurants that were popular with Chinese, check out the live music scene, go to the art district and also find a part of the Chinese Wall were few tourists found their way. Echo was just such a guide that I hoped for, and I feel very lucky that she had the time to show me around as I now know she has many projects going. I would highly recommend Echo. A more professional guide is hard to imagine, and as a big collector of western movies she speaks perfect English. I have already asked for Echo's assistance for a trip that I am planning to take to the areas around Nanjing and to Yellow Mountains this summer together with my youngest son. I know she will do her utmost to make our holiday perfect and I look very much forward to meet her again.
This is the second time that I use Echo's service, the first was 2010, I'm so glad that she still remembers me when I emailed her 2 months ago.
We went to Shanghai, Suzhou and Nanjing for 5 days, I had a great time with Echo, she is clever, easy-going, kind.... well, I think everything about her is wonderful, Also she is very creative and educated, much more than a tour guide, she is more like a director to Chinese culture and history.
Thanks Echo! I'm looking forward to see you next time in China!
Echo was my tour guide for my second solo China trip.
We spent 8 days together, visiting Shanghai, Suzhou, Tongli, Zhouzhang, Huangshan, and Nanjing.
Echo is intelligent, funny, adventurous and has a flair for the arts.
She is also very tough, slogging along with me on day 2 of our Huangshan trek, even though I know she was in a lot of physical pain from all the climbing we did.
If you look at one of her posted pictures, she was going down the steps sideways, in a lot of pain. Yet, she never complained, never asked me to stop or go slow. A real trooper.
She is mature well beyond her physical age and no matter what she does with her life eventually, I know she will be great at it.
I would recommend Echo to anyone needing a tour guide without hesitation. She is a real gem.
