"Your local expert and travel friend throughout Yunnan"
In the ever changing flux and flow, how can i tell you who i am; all i can do is to try, to tell who i was... I used to be clever, and wanted to change the world... now am wise, and want to change myself.
It is said people meet for reasons, due to past kama. Whatever reason it may be , you're here to teach me, to show me the path, the path of unconditional trust, the path of surrender...
The appearing price is for guiding service and guide's exspense only. Customer's transportation and lodge are excluded. Working duration is 8-9 hrs per day, including waiting time. Apparently it looks high, but we try to save money for you along the way, by taking you to places less known but authentic and beautiful by its own nature, without much entry fee; also by taking you to clean and tasty restaurants at local price; by booking you into beautiful hotels and guesthouses with good tastes, at reasonable price..

Reviews of Elena Luo
I'm living in Thailand and want to travel in different way than other Thai peoples. Then I started looking for local tour guide in China, I deal with local guide 2-3 guys before made final choosing. Elena had shown a lot good attributes that we are looking for from tour guide eg. good responsive, good itinerary provided, trustworthy.
During the trip, she took us to a good restaurant, good hotel in reasonable price. She took care my mom, my nephew, actually everyone in the group. So she's a good guide for family, everyone in our group had impressed her a lots. So I will introduce her to my friend who want to go to Yunnan, sure.
I live in Beijing and i was looking for a short break and decided to visit Yunnan, after asking a good Beijing friend for an introduction to a good tour guide in the Lijiang area she recommended me to Ms. Elena Luo, i contacted her and she was available, i booked the flight and the hotel by myself, she toke care of a Jeep with driver, i told her that i did not want to see the touristic highlights but the countryside and the real life of the local people, the 3 of us have been touring around on September 3,4 and 5 and they have given me a great time, one night we stayed in a local hostel in Shaxi town, i loved it! we were lucky to have good weather almost all the time, enjoyed excellent local food and i made beautiful pictures. There is so much more to see in Yunnan, therefore i am planning to go there again next year summer and for sure i will ask Elena to be our guide again, actually i feel like we became very good friends in just a few days, she is so open and willing to tell about the peoples life and their difficulties and their happiness. I can highly recommend her as your future guide!

Boned in a remote village surrounded by endless mountains in Yunnan, I always had the dream to travel and see the world beyond. So I studied very hard in school and became the first university student throughout my little town.

It is the middle of January in 2012. It has been snowing for about a week. The road got blocked by the heavy snow. We've been watching the sky and finally the sun shines, and finally we made the trip to Shangrila, with two customers from Austrilia.

Chinese medicine may seem very mysterious and maybe even look disgusting, for people who don't know much about it. Quite often, western customers ask me," do you still use the traditional Chinese medicine and accupuncture?" Yes, we do, even people find most hospitals running under a western system, and western medicines are sold in many drug stores.
