On August 23, 2019 I was invited to join A Fascinating Night of Huangshan, a promotional event hosted by the Shanghai Tourism Department and Ctrip. I was very excited that Ctrip and LetsLocals asked me to attend this event! LetsLocals also asked me to do an Instagram Story Takeover for them that night.
It was a fun evening learning about Huangshan Mountain and the beautiful villages surrounding it. I’ve hiked Huangshan Mountain once before, and it is one of my favorite hiking trips I’ve done in China.
Huangshan International Citizen
It was also such an honor to be selected as a Huangshan International Citizen! A few special attendees will be Huangshan International Citizens for a year, and we can visit this mountain without paying the entrance fee for a year!
I then spoke on behalf of Lets Locals to say thank you for the invitation to attend the event, and also shared about my own personal experience hiking Huangshan. Thank you to the Mayor of Huangshan City for this honor!
We were also able to enjoy the beautiful Shanghai skyline at night from the cruise ship and had a buffet banquet after the ceremony.
Thank You For Inviting Me!
Thank you again to Ctrip and Lets Locals for inviting me to join this event in Shanghai!

I have previously collaborated with Ctrip and LetsLocals on a trip to Zunyi, Guizhou. Check out my post about that trip here!
After the event I had time to take some other photos by the Bund! Add Shanghai to your travel list if you’ve never been!
