Hire a Guide or Just a Driver

Visiting with tour guide you will learn about the culture and history of the place on a deeper level and from a local’s perspective. A guide is your personal resource. You will be able to ask as many questions as you want. However, the cost of tour guide hire is an additional expense, whether small or large. Usually, English speaking guide (not driver, two separate persons) costs 550RMB –850RMB per day, 8-9 working hours. 

If pre-travel research and a good guide book are sufficient for you, then a much less expensive option is to hire a Non-English / Chinese speaking driver to take you around. You won’t get as much of the history, but a driver can take you to the sites, wait for you and he knows where to take you and when to bring you back.

WeChat translator function is a popular tool to ask a local for directions, tell a driver an address or say almost anything you’d like in another language. In a chat, long press the message you would like to translate. A menu will appear and you will be able to select the Translat option. The message will be translated into the interface language you set for WeChat.
