On November 11, 2019 I had the honor of being invited to attend A Fascinating Night of Zunyi, a promotional event for the city of Zunyi in the Guizhou Province.
This past July I went on a special travel experience excursion with Ctrip to visit Zunyi as a foreign social media ambassador. It was an amazing trip and definitely put Guizhou high on my list of favorite provinces in China.

Ctrip invited me to attend this promotional event in Shanghai to share about this travel experience and make a presentation with photos and a speech.
The Evening Activities
The event was held on a Ctrip cruise ship on the Pearl River in Shanghai – honestly you couldn’t ask for a better location in Shanghai!
The evening featured many special Zunyi traditions, including a traditional song and a tea performance. There were also many speeches made by members from the Shanghai Tourism Board, the Ctrip Administration, and also the Zunyi Tourism Board. It was very enjoyable to be reminded of all the things I loved about Zunyi, and also learn even more about the city!
My Zunyi Travel Experience Speech
After the singing performance it was time for my speech. I shared my 7 Favorite Things About Zunyi, and really enjoyed talking about my experiences and remembering the fun experiences we had cave climbing, hiking, and also trying the many delicious Guizhou foods!

Zunyi Global Ambassador
After the speech we were presented with certificates and became Zunyi Global Ambassadors. What a big honor!
Night Cruise on the River
After the presentations and photos ended we had a dinner banquet below the deck of the ship. The ship also left the dock to embark on a night cruise around The Bund.
Thanks to Ctrip and the Zunyi Tourism Board
The event was a wonderful celebration of the city of Zunyi, and it was exciting to reconnect with many Chinese friends I met when I visited Zunyi a few months ago. Thank you again to Ctrip and the Zunyi Tourism Board for inviting me to attend this event and giving me the honor of being a Global Ambassador for Zunyi. I hope to have the chance to visit Zunyi again!
