Michael Hai, given name Yan, is a Shanghai native. He leads 4-5 trips for AFCEA each year. At other times he acts as city guide for tour groups visiting Shanghai. Michael is almost 28 and lives with his parents in Shanghai.
When we were in Beijing, Howard was our city guide. Coco was our guide in Xi’an and Daisy helped us get around in Ningbo. In Hong Kong it will be Polly. Their knowledge is invaluable to us. We could wander for weeks and not see or learn a tenth of what we pick up from our guides in a short time.
The guides usually walk around with a flag flying from a collapsible pointer to help everyone pick them out of the crowd. They get us our tickets, help us through check points or airport security, and lead us down the path, always in a good way.
The guides make the trip.
