    About Me

    Roads are in front of us all ,life is yours  ,travel needs no time to wait and it is one of the great teacher to learn from!

    I am a Bai woman born in Dali and living in Shaxi at the moment,Shaxi is  a mountainous part of Yuannan Dali Prefecture with a deep history on the old tea horse road .  My background is an part time  English teacher and a vegetarian  chef.  I have extensive knowledge of Yunnan foods,people, and wild plants, as well as Bai culture.  I have more than 5 years experience as a guide,Fixer and translator, taking journalists, photographers, researchers,and tourists all over Yunnan.

    For the past 6 years I also  have traveled to Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Nepal, India, Malaysia, Tibet as well as many big city in China .  I am deeply passionate about traveling, I love to meet people of all walks of life from other cultures. I love to explore new and less visited  places, to learn different ways of thinking and living from people .  With my work I constantly learn more about myself and the life in this amazing and ever changing world.

    I speak Mandarin, local dialect, Bai language and fluent English.  I like to take my  guests to off-the-beaten-paths, to local markets, to ancient villages and monasteries, and to trails in the mountains to meet local minority peoples including shamans, elders, crafts people, artists and other characters of interest living in the area.

    Since moved to Shaxi a year ago ,I spent most of my time on hiking,biking ,trekking into high solitude mountains.I like to view myself as a real ,personal  , passionate outdoor guide who cares about  your coming trip in Yunnan.

    In  hope to  preserve our nature ,everyone who join my tour will get a free  tree in return to donate to local community &people .

    I also offer fresh market tours with cooking class in Shaxi Pear Orchard Temple, and mushroom picking tours in the summer rainy season.  If you prefer, we can also cook a lovely Bai-style homemade meal together.

    Please feel free to contact me!

    Enjoy your travel in Yunnan - The Clouds of the South !

      My wife and i were in Lijaing in early November 2016 and Apple was our tour guide. She was wonderful. She is smart, resourceful, friendly and engaging. She got to know us quickly and then proceeded to tailor the trip to our preferences. We stayed at the Intercontinental in Lijiang and visited different locations by car, each day. Apple is an expert on many things: the geography, culture, religion, and economy of the Yunan more

      In August 2016 my family went on a trip to the Yunnan province. We were incredibly fortunate to have Apple as our guide. Having your trip guided by someone who cares deeply about her land and her people makes a world of difference. Apple is an inexhaustible source of history relating to both local peoples and the whole of more

      <p>I write this review about a very interesting and joyful trip in Lijiang which was upgraded to one of our best memories of this holiday. We, a group of 3 brothers and sisters stayed for around 4 days around the area and Apple was our first tour guide. Starting point was near our hotel where we decided to make a short round trip in the city and then started to climb up the hill right besides the black dragon more
