Scarlett's Shanghai Tours
Hi there! My name is Scarlett Mao; I’m a 25-year old certified Chinese tour guide, specialising in the Shanghai metropolitan area, and surrounding cities like Hangzhou, Suzhou and Nanjing.
First of all, allow me to introduce myself! I have been working in this area as a guide for both Chinese and English-language foreign tourists for some time. Previously, I worked at one of Shanghai’s top hotels, where I had the pleasure of dealing with guests from all around the world. During this time, I became more connected with the many charms of this city than ever before. Since then, I feel I have developed a deep sense of what Shanghai can really offer to tourists and, as a consequence, have developed unique tour programs in line with my vision of this city.
Most people have heard of Shanghai’s famous attractions, like The Bund, People’s Square and Yu Garden, and I am well acquainted with all of them. However, what many tourists miss out on is the city’s vibrant local culture, which in modern times is often pushed away from view, into side roads, small parks and squares. It is here where you can get a true feel for the city; marvel at locals gathering to play majiang in a springtime park, take in the long-forgotten homes of old Chinese poets and writers, or savour the city’s incredible cuisine: in small street stalls, side streets and small markets, hidden from view. On my tour, I hope to combine these neglected, traditional elements of Shanghai with the bustling, modern metropolis and world-class attractions that entice many travellers.
I have academic certification in both conversational and business English, and can offer you a colourful, warm-hearted, memorable and entertaining portrayal of this engaging, many-sided city.
