Good morning ,Ladies and gentlemen!

Welcome to Jiangsu! We are leaving Nanjing Crown Plaza. First let me introduce my group members: Chen Dongli ,you can call her Jassica; then, this is Huwei ,her English name is Rata, then, another member are Zhang Wanting and Li Yasi. My name is YuXiaiyan, my English name is Yuki, you can call me Xiaoyu or Yuki. On behalf of the travel service and my colleagues, I would like to extend a warm-hearted welcome to all of you. I will be your local guide for this leg of trip. We will try our best to make your visit smooth. If you have any problem, please do not hesitate to tell me. My mobile phone number is 123456789. I will have it switched on for 24hours. I am very happy to see you coming from the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
