We are a couple (Joana is Chinese, José Portuguese) that are frequent travelers around the world and decided to have them life base in Jinxi, a beautiful water town very close to Shanghai.

We decided to became organizers of tours in China due to 2 main reasons:; one is to offer an European level of Service that is missing around here, another is to make different proposals from those that usually we found in the market.. We speak Chinese, Portuguese, English, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian. Not so fluently Spanish and French

WE aim to show visitors for one side the tradition and the culture of the China from the Emperors but at same time offering very high comfort, quality of service and experiences for the senses.

Our activity areas are:

Tours (for 1-3 couples or groups were we take visitors to some of the most  beautiful water towns, mountains and lakes in China and World Heritage Unesco sites)

Boutique Hotel (a small but beautiful Qing Dynasty House each room a garden, exquisite decoration)

Decoration & Furniture  (we have our collection of Chinese Qing and Minguo furniture, doors and windows.

Tea Culture (includes a workshop about teas and how to prepare each type and a tour visiting the locals were are produced the best teas of the World and taste them there)


Jinxi is an ancient city with a history of thousands of years. When some digging has been done some years ago for construction pots were found with nearly 5,000 years. There is evidence that in Shang and Zhou periods the area was inhabited by people who were engaged in fishing and agriculture (especially rice).

The original name of the city was Jinxi but was called for over 800 years as Chenmu. In the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). Emperor Xiaozong accompanied by his wife Chen fled from enemy attack and in doing so, passed through the town. The Empress Chen was attracted by the beauty of the city and would not leave. Unfortunately, Chen died of disease in Jinxi and Emperor Xiaozong, buried his body in Lake Wubao and ordered that the name of Jinxi should be changed to Chenmu in memory of his favorite wife. In 1993 the city reclaimed the name Jinxi.
