About me:

    About me? There are TWO me, the real self, and, the ego. When the real self is present, i am a happy person, bright, full of energy, loving, kind, generous, easy going,  flowing, understanding, helpful, playful, peaceful and even godly, and make people feel good about themselves too. When the ego is present, completely, the world shifts. Shifting from light to shadow, shadow to light, i am passing through the space of life. You see positive reviews about me, and they are true, for that time only;  you see negative reviews, they are also true, for that time only.

    Good news is that, after 7 years of guidinging, i still stay with this job, not the serious, knowledgeable and professional guide any more, but i still find this an easy, nice and fun thing to do. 

    Sth. more? I love chocolate out of fridge, free body movements, jokes, quiet towns, wide space, fresh air, spontaneous people, quality food, anything happy and relaxing.

  Thank you.

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!

The knowledgeable guide
We hired Elena Luo for a week tripping around North West Yunnan. Elena was a truly great guide and is gold. As well as seeing the usual popular spots, but with local knowledge that was fascinating, Elena also showed us many out of the way places which are not in the guide books and became the highlight of our trip. Elena's knowledge, passion and love for her country is something that was an experience in itself. She also made many arrangements on are way around and these were without fail an enjoyable experience. When considering traveling in Yunnan, hire Elena and this will truly add to your experience.

  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 in my little village.

Lamu and her family's girls are one of these. As a family owned restaurant, all staffs are Lamu's cousins or nieces.

    No. 58 Yard is one of my passion in Shaxi. It is a lovely cozy guesthouse with only 6 rooms, a cute little garden leisurely designed by the owner, who is from Taiwan. She is a quiet and artistic beauty. Anything she touches simply becomes beautiful. Never advertising any where, but No. 58 Yard remains the most popular one in Shaxi all year round.
