About Me

Again,dear CSers ,I will not reply any messages unless you wrote the correct first message!
Couchsurfing is not a Tinder app, not an app to link you with business in China or a free tour guide, not a place where you message"Hello " and nothing afterwards.
-updated 11/03/2024

I live in Shenzhen ,Shenzhen !Shenzhen! not HK. These two cities are very close but not the same !!!
I received so many requests from people visiting HK even though i put specific information here .It annoys me that people don't even read my profile before asking to stay at mine.
Please put this on your first message "Hey Elaine from Shenzhen", so that i know you read my profile first❤️Otherwise,I won't reply!

I am an outgoing and friendly person.I am a fun person to be friend with ,easygoing,energetic,always open to know about new things. Besides,i have a good personality and nice manners ,i respect myself as well as the ppl around me .I am very talktive when i meet interesting ppl.I love sharing stories,cultures and values with ppl from different backgrounds! I studied my master at Wuhan uni ,majoring in teaching Chinese as a second language.And i went to teach in two different countries while i was doing my master degree.

At the moment it is my 3rd year in Shenzhen city!Still exploring my life here! I live in a loft here with my two cats. If u need a host or just look for fun person to hang out with, send me a PM! Let us make the CS cummunity in Shenzhen more alive😉

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love traveling and meeting ppl from different cultures . I like to share minds ,values,different opinions .I like to explore the place where i travel to ,not only see views but more about the culture and lifestyle there,staying with locals is a perfect way to exchange ideas and cultures .I love it !

I have met so many interesting ppl and had such a great time back in Mongolia and Mexico through CS meetings and hang outs. This App is awesome! I actually met my three good friends there in UB from CS and they helped me a lot showing me around ,we had so much fun there!
