What you'll do

The journey takes us to a story of Chinese emigrating to six continents in the past, the Chinatowns they built at the present and Chinatown in London where I currently live. Join us for an interactive multimedia experience, hosted from my home to yours via Zoom.

The experience includes three parts: history, culture, and fusion. In between, we will 'have' food breaks to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the area.

Through my pre-recorded videos of Chinatown, behind-the-scene stories, and interactive games, we’ll experience this neighborhood's history, art, food & drinks, and culture in general, as well as interacting with others. You will gain insights about Chinatowns around the world and London's multiculturalism.

This online experience is designed for individuals, couples, families, or groups who want to explore and connect. Price is for per adult and guests under 18 can join for free.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

I'm an online learning designer with seven years of experience. Born in Shanghai, I've lived in Hong Kong, Norway, the US (briefly), and now London. I’m passionate about creating fun and engaging cultural experiences in London. While we’re physically apart, I decided to redesign my popular Airbnb Experience 'Explore Chinatown Inside Out' (https://www.airbnb.com/explorechinatown) as a live online adventure so we can explore Chinatown and share cultures in a whole new way.

I learned a lot about the history of Chinatowns around the world and especially London's Chinatown. Minji is very knowledgeable and personable and the entire experience was extremely well curated!

Wherever I go in the world, there is almost always a Chinatown but I never know why. Minji shared interesting stories and history of Chinese immigration to 6 continents, Chinatown culture and history with a focus on London where she currently resides, and how Chinatowns continue to evolve and thrive. Her experience included a few different sections and they were so perfectly woven together. Minji is an online experience designer and it really shows in the experience. She is also extremely good with kids. There was a family with young kids participating and Minji did a wonderful job engaging the kids throughout the entire experience. Highly recommended!

Minji connects a lot of global historical events through the discussions on Chinese Diaspora across the globe, with extra focus on London Chinatown. Well thought out, superbly planned and brilliantly executed experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I highly recommend this five star experience!

This is a fantastic experience: I've lived in London for most of my life but I found out so much about this unique part of the city that I didn't know before. My 10-year-old was enjoying it so much that she begged to be allowed to stay for the whole experience. Thanks Minji - what a lovely way to spend the evening.

Minji was very sweet. She was very knowledgable. I learned so much about chinatowns around the world (not just the UK). I think this online experience is for everyone as we all have been to a chinatown once in our life.

It was interesting and well presented. I enjoyed it and learned many things that I didn't know. A wonderful example of armchair traveling.
