Ying WAN
Tour Guide and Musician

Origin - Mainland China


Mr. Ying Wan was born in Beijing. In 1988 he left China to study in Japan. After his graduation there was an opportunity for him to apply to stay in the UK. Without hesitation Wan came over to the UK, directly from Japan, in 1992 . At the beginning because of the language barrier he could only do labour jobs in Chinatown. However being a musician for so long in Beijing & Japan, his heart was calling for music, arts and culture. Within a year he decided to leave Chinatown and learned to work as a tour guide to earn his living. Concurrently he devoted his time to setting up the Jun Kun Opera Group, with his friends, to promote Chinese arts and culture in the UK.
