About Me

I am a Chinese living in Shanghai, enjoy both hosting and surfing, knowing new people and new area. I am happy to welcome everyone.

I live alone. Requests starts with 2-3 nights will be good, you may extend your stay if everything is fine. I prefer host solo travelers, but due to my living condition, Prefer host travelers than settlers.

Live Laugh Love

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Love the concept of pay it forward and helping people makes me happy.
Also looking for travel partners, to tour anywhere around the world.

Hosted over 150 travelers since 2014, and enjoy it.

Since I am a freelancer, time is very flexible, I would like to find travel partners to do different things. Did driving in US for 10 national parks in 2015, looking for partners to travel.


Like traveling, movies, musicals and opera. Like cooking as well.
