Nice to meet you. I’m Kylie.
I’ve been a freelance English tour guide for more than 3 years. So far I’ve guided more than 250 tours, ranging from in-depth walking tours , private tours that travel around Taiwan in two weeks, and day tours in greater Taipei area. Being a tour guide is a meaningful and enjoyable career for me.
First of all, I love learning new things. In order to impress foreign visitors with well-organized interpretation, I do my best to cultivate myself. For example, I read a lot, I do backpacking at least once every year, and I take communication skills courses. What’s more, during the tour, I’ll know more about cultural differences through the conversation and interaction with visitors. This job reminds me of the importance of being open-minded.
Second, as a tour guide, I regard myself as an unofficial diplomat. Although Taiwan is such a small island, we have a great variety of landscapes, warm people, and amazing folk cultures. As a Taiwanese, I’m proud of my homeland, and I believe that it’s tour guides’ responsibility to share the beauty and values of Taiwan with the world.
