For me, if I’m visiting a new city in China, then the answer is yes. China is a country that well worth travelling to. A guide who can speak my mother language can save me a lot of trouble. It will be wonderful if I can find a friend living in the city I’m visiting. But if not, I will be willing to pay for the serve at a reasonable price. Following are my reasons.
- TO FIND DELICIOUS FOOD
China is famous for its delicious food, and that’s the most important reason for me to visit China. A local tour guide can help me identify the most delicious street food that will never be found if I travel alone. AND under certain circumstances, he can buy it CHEAPER than I do.
- TO UNDERSTAND THEIR CULTURE
China has a long history, most of which are unfamiliar to me. Without a local tour guide who speak my mother language, I may never have a chance to totally understand the place I visit.
- TO AVOID CULTURE SHOOK
A severe problem of visiting a foreign country is culture shook. However, culture shock can be eased by following a local tour in a way. By following a local guide who understand my own culture background, he can tell me what the different behavior means and how should I response under different condition.
Above are the main reasons for me to travel with a local tour guide speaks my mother language. An experienced local tour guide can save more troubles than that. Travelling is relaxing and approving to the new world, so I choose to try my best to keep myself in a good mood.
