I worked as a official museum guide and activities organizer at Guangdong Museum, which is the biggest museum of Guangzhou for 2 years. Not only because I like culture and art, but also I was born and raised here, I enjoyed so much to show the Cantonese history and culture to different culture backgrounds people. After the experience at museum, I still focus my job on culture and exhibitions. I planned tours for groups of children or family to visit the old city area. And at free time, I also take some new foreigners here to visit Guangzhou and practice my English.

We'll most likely go up to a popular area in locals--Lychee Bay. And explore a traditional old mansion--Xiguan House, which even many Cantonese don't haven't visit ever. After that, we will visit a local beautiful park, which is popular by the elder Cantonese, to learn the Cantonese opera and local leisure activities. During this trip, we will go to some traditional Cantonese-style restaurant to taste traditional snack or famous local desserts.
