Our schedule only allowed 2 nights in Nanjing. Lingling is a great host, eager and keen for you to enjoy your stay and to make it as traditional as possible. She made us breakfast and evening meals which gave us a true taste of China, we walked to the local market where she chose food that we had never seen before and cooked it for us. She also escorted us to the local area acting as our guide. She can help you with any issues you might have. Lingling's accomodation is more suited to light travelling backpackers, the apartment is on the 8th level which is 16 flights of stairs and boast a good city view of Nanging. Overall we really enjoyed staying with Lingling she is a lovely lady with a great command of the English language and a lovely rough collie dog (the lassie type) called Bonbon.
I regret that I was unable to meet and stay with Lingling because she needed the room for her daughter. I did not know this until I contacted her about my visit. I was able to make other arrangements. She did offer her attic without charge.
I stayed with Lingling and her dog Bonbon for 5 days and I was very sad to leave. LIngling was an amazing hostess...she spent everyday showing me around Nanjing. I treasured the morning and evening walks with her dog. She showed me how to take the subway and bus...And since I do not speak Chinese, I would have been lost without her translating skills. She speaks excellent English. I am planning on returning to Nanjing next year with my family...Although we will be staying in a hotel (there are 4 of us)...I still plan on hiring LIngling to accompany us to non-tourist areas for her translation ability. She was a joy to stay with and I would highly recommend her home as a great location to stay at while visiting Nanjing.
All was perfect, Linlin is a great hostess, and it was a great pleasure to be her guest.
Lingling is something like the nicest person on earth. She joined me to all important places of Nanjing, even picked me up from the station. She likes to get to know new people, is very talkative and also very experienced in traveling. The location is very convienient and with bus and subway you can reach all important places very easily.
Ling was an amazing host. She has a beautiful place in a nice part of the city, very convenient and close to major attractions. She was very generous with her time and resources, accompanying me and making sure I could get where I needed to go. She is also a wonderful Chinese teacher. We became good friends during the short time I stayed with her.
the host is helpful in providing infomation on travelling
eg bus route.Always make you feel at home.
Greeneryling was a fantastic host. She truly made us feel at home. Her family met us at the hotel and helped us settle in. They were generous and considerate and even bought food for my daughter and I. She made me feel welcomed and at home in Nanjing. I hope to visit Nanjing again.
