Zhang was born and raised in Yunnan province, which gives her special insight into the many ways to explore the region. She travels around the country every other month to check out new offerings like Amanyangyun in Shanghai and the new bullet-train route in Yunnan. Zhang makes sure to dig deeper into the particular interests of returning clients by pairing them with on-the-ground experts like contemporary art critics and World War II scholars. Her knowledge extends beyond the borders of China — she also can plan itineraries in nearby countries like Nepal, Bhutan, and Myanmar.
"I had a wonderful experience working with Mei and the team at WildChina while planning a trip to several regions in China this past year. Mei is the consummate cultural liaison to China. She provided a range of exciting itineraries that delivered the type of experiences we sought within the allocated timeframe and budget. Her and her team worked closely with us to narrow down the options and ultimately refine the trip until it met all of our desires. She has a large, experienced staff that works closely with her and her leadership to bring the itinerary to life. On the ground, our trip to China was more than we could have hoped for. We had experiences that we could have only dreamed of. We owe much to Mei and the WildChina team." - Mattew Sade
