I am Michael Shen, and I was born in Shanghai where I finished my college, but I grew up in Hangzhou. My major is in public management and I have learned English as my 2nd language. Traveling is my favorite thing, and I have already visited up to 65 countries, 400 cities and many attractions, so this experience has let me known what the travelers need and how to help them, while exchanging and sharing traveling ideas with them about transportation, accommodation, food, local culture and history etc. This is my main purpose to be a Guru, I think. To be a native free tour lecturer and guide, I and my team would like to do our best and go as far as we can. So let's go!
