Sawadee has worked with Xi’an CYIT for over 20 years. About 10 years ago some freelance local guides from Xi’an were trained to be local tour leaders for Sawadee tour groups in China. In the last years mainly three local tour leaders led the groups, they are Ms. Lily Zhang who has an eleven- year-old son, Mr. Owen Wang Hao who has just married in 2019, Mr. Eric Sun Zhaoting who has a three- year-old son. They have worked hard as tour leaders and mostly got very good feedback from their group members after working for 23 days or 31 days with their excellent service and knowledge of China. By guiding several groups each year, they used to have stable income to support themselves and their families.


Sadly, since beginning of 2020 they started having no tourists, no customers, no jobs, and no income due to the sudden outbreak of Corona Virus Disease 2019. Till now the epidemic situation in the world is so serious that the recovery of international tourism seems nowhere in sight. The local guides’ special skills are English speaking and tour guiding, but they can’t use either of them now, it is difficult for them to find proper jobs although they have been trying hard to do something to support their families. In April 2020 the government distributed 1000yuan(about euro127) to each guide which is all they have got.


If you are in a better status, it will be great if you can help them to get through their difficult time. With your help they can keep well and will welcome Sawadee tourists again in the future. Also we know that many people are undergoing a difficult time because of the pandemic. We hope people who are still be able to support and help our local guides, please kindly do so. One day when you travel with Sawadee, maybe she or he can meet you and be your local tour leader in China and invite you a tea or a delicious Chinese meal.


We thank you very much in advance !


And hope to meet you soon in a tour to China !


Best wishes to the world and to everybody who reads this message !
