Mei Zhang

T+L TOP TRAVEL ADVISOR | CHINA SPECIALIST

Mei Zhang

California-based Zhang helps clients travel to lesser-known parts of China. One three-week trip she created included several encounters with wildlife: seeing pandas in Chengdu, exploring a snub-nosed-monkey sanctuary in Tacheng, and visiting Pudacuo National Park, home to more than 100 species of plants and animals.

One of her favorite recommendations: "Norden Camp is a Tibetan tented camp owned by a local entrepreneur, where travelers like to meet local families," Zhang says. "And Silver Heights winery is always inspiring to visit. Owner Emma Gao is a winemaker in Ningxia who always takes time to talk to our guests and share her journey into the wine business."

ADDITIONAL SPECIALTIES: Tibet and Hong Kong

Languages Spoken: English, Chinese, and Yunnan Chinese dialect

Minimum Daily Spend: From $500 per person per day

Testimonial

"My husband and I are experienced travelers, and our trip to China planned by Mei Zhang exceeded all expectations. The thoughtful reading list she suggested helped set the stage. We saw the "greatest hits" of China and also spent six wonderfully relaxing days in Yunnan Province. Not only was the itinerary beautifully designed, but our guides were wonderful. Mei is from this part of Yunnan Province, and we felt as if we had been received into her hometown. We were welcomed into homes, enjoyed tea and a number of meals with local Bai villagers, and experienced village life. The planning, the pacing, the people, and the thoughtfulness of this trip surpassed any we have taken. Cannot recommend Mei enough." - Cathy K.
