Help from another direction

My own tour guide?

I just happened to meet someone in the Government a few weeks ago, and consequently have networked to find a lovely young Chinese girl, who is very familiar with the local tourist spots.

So, perhaps, I can get some good information about the city to share with readers. It is a wonderful city with so many places to see. But it is acknowledged by quite a few people that I have spoken to, that there is little information - and nothing in English.

I have visited the Tourist Office and there were NO BROCHURES at all - and certainly nothing in English. When I asked for maps or other information there wasn't any.

When I visited Hangzhou there was a really good map (in English), and there is a good magazine which is especially for the local English speakers who live in the area, but with good information about tourist spots, and restaurants. Ningbo - another city locally - also has good material for English speakers. Shaoxing? Nothing.

I have a number of friends who are working here - and we all find it difficult to get around - so we would appreciate more information in English.

Maybe between the students, my new friend, and my English speaking friends, we can put together some information.
