On 2023-03-01, Hong Kong announced that there is no need to wear masks! The private tour guide service has restarted, and I look forward to meeting you! You can get free consulting services through email/Apple iMessages/WeChat/whatapp, etc. Thank you very much. In addition, the website will be transferred in the near future.
While you might be able to navigate your way through first-tier cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou with just English, some simple phrases in Mandarin might come in handy when you venture outside of the urban comfort zone. For those with limited Chinese skills, here are a few that you should have in your back pocket.
Excuse me, can you help me please?
Bùhǎo yìsi, kěyǐ bāngmáng ma?
Do you speak English?
Nǐ huì shuō yīngwén ma?
I don’t speak Chinese.
Wǒ búhuì shuō pǔtōnghuà.
Could you write that down for me in Chinese characters?
