I am Victor Wang. I am from Leshan where the Giant Buddha is and now live at Chengdu where the pandas live. I have been taking tourists around China for a few western tour companies between 2004 and 2011. During this time, I bought my first camera and then I fell in love with taking pictures. The magnificent views, the impressive persons, and especially the memorable moments with my guests gave me a fantastic memery.
In order to spend more time with my family, I quited the tour leader job and then worked in Chengdu as a local guide and photographer 2 years ago. I have been most of the places of Chengdu, especially the poor, backward and minority areas, for both groups and pictures. All these built me a passion to Chengdu and I really want to show it to the visitors.
On the other hand, after 10 years working with the foreigners, I knew what you want to see, Real China life, but not just the morden cement forests. I will share my working experience in the Panda Base with you when we visit there. I will lead you to meet the real monks or Daoists in the temple, even eat with them. I will recommend you to try the culinary(yummy!) gems off the beaten tracks in the city and you can also learn how to make them. I will introduce you to see the lama's sutra-debating at the biggest tibetan buddhism institute. I will sugguest you the right place and right time to take a best picture. In a word, I will show you the best of Chengdu whilst saving your time and hassle.
If you are planning to visit China, please do not miss Chengdu, if you want to visit Chengdu, please do not forget Victor! Let us meet as strangers but part as good friends!
A Recent Review of this guide
Victor is no doubt one of the best guides we have ever used via Tours by Locals (and we have used many!!!). We spent two days with Victor and both were absolutely perfect. Being a Panda Keeper for a Day was one of the most special things we have ever done. Getting so close to these incredible animals was just priceless! We also did a private city tour with Victor and enjoyed every minute of it. Victor is knowledgeable, friendly and willing to go out of his way to make your day the best. WE LOVE HIM!
