Friendly Planet Travel Podcasts: chatting with China

At Friendly Planet Travel, we’re in constant communication with our tour guides around the world. We just like to be sure that we’re completely on top of everything that’s taking place in every Friendly Planet Travel destination, and make sure our guides know they’re doing a fantastic job. In fact, the No. 1 praise we receive from returning travelers is all in thanks to the great work done by our talented and informative tour guides.
Since our guides play such an integral role in your Friendly Planet Travel experience, we thought it would be a great idea to kick off a podcast series in which you can get to know a little bit about some of the locals.
First up in our series is Sam Liu. Sam has been a Friendly Planet Travel tour guide in China for the past nine years. Last week, Bridget, one of our Friendly Planeteers, had the opportunity to speak to Sam, and learn a little bit about what it’s like to be a Friendly Planet Tour guide in China.
We’re thankful Sam could take the time out of his busy schedule to chat with us for a few minutes, as he was getting ready to leave for the annual Duanwu Festival, otherwise known as the Dragon Boat Festival.
