Hu Nana, a post-1990 generation from northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, became an online tourist guide two years ago in Hangzhou, east China's Zhejiang Province.

The emerging service mode, allowing tourists to book guide online for individualized travel route, has helped Hu make twice as much as before when she worked as a traditional tour guide.

Hu, who became a tour guide in 2010, said she has more freedom to arrange her time and can provide more individualized service to clients who seek in-depth travel experiences in one place.

Benefiting from the new tour guide working mode with the help of high technology, she has bought two apartments, raised a pet cat and lives a life she enjoys in Hangzhou, Hu grins.

Most visitors choosing online tourist guide are between 30 and 50 years old and they often travel with families and colleagues.
