What fun! I get to assist the delightful Dr Kate Bagnall run tours for Chinese Australian family historians to villages in southern China.

After spending some time exploring Hong Kong’s connections to Australia’s Chinese communities we take a ferry across to southern China where we experience the diversity of southern Chinese history and culture.

Together we explore a range of different kinds of villages from the very humble to the world heritage listed. Throughout the tour we enjoy local food, chat to villagers and share Chinese Australian stories.

Project role: Tour guide
Tour dates: 22-31 Mar 2017
