At its heart, Panda Guides is dedicated to helping travelers and expats maximize their
experience in China. Whether you’re a tourist looking to scratch the surface of 5,000 years of
history, a businessperson working in a Fortune 500 company under the bright lights of a booming
metropolis, or a diligent English teacher exploring the world one classroom at a time, our mission
is to provide trustful and reliable information to make your stay in the Middle Kingdom as smooth
and as fun as possible.
So why, you may ask, do we care about the foreign community in China so much? Well, it’s because we are part of the foreign community. Many of us left our homes to live the Chinese dream – learning the language and customs, traveling to all corners of the country, and interacting with the locals on a daily basis. We came here and were so enamored by China and the Chinese people that we want every foreigner who leaves their footprints here to have as wonderful an experience as we have. Since there are major cultural differences between the East and West, we figure the best way to help foreigners in China is by providing guides and other tools in all shapes and sizes to suit tourists and expats alike.
Our goal is to become the number one travel resource for international visitors to China. We aim to achieve this by offering an unparalleled array of in-depth travel information and local insight to help maximize your China experience. It’s our honor to help you on your journey through the best of what this fascinating country has to offer: you can trek through the mountainous ethnic-minority villages of Yunnan, kick up dust on the back of a camel on the Silk Road, feast on a dim sum extravaganza in Hong Kong, or tour the historical UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Old Beijing. Whether you’re looking to stay on or stray away from the beaten path, we have options for you. Furthermore, our recommendations of hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping venues not only get you to the hottest spots in town, but also help you save money by offering discounts at selected Panda Partners.
As you can see, Panda Guides is more than just a guide, it's an experience, and after following the Panda you'll quickly see why Panda knows China better. The Panda Guides team would like to be the first to welcome you to China, and we are more than happy to assist you with anything you need to make your memories of China last a lifetime. We hope to hear from you soon!
