We will explore the pier in the early morning, before the flocks of tourists have arrived and the amusement part is yet to open. You will only see a handful of people wandering around and feel like a true local. We will meet at 7:30 in front of Santa Monica Pier (under the arch) and experience peace and quiet at one of the most iconic spots in California. We'll take a walk around the pier, chat, enjoy the view along the way. I will take high quality portraits of you from unique angles and spots that you wouldn't find unless you go to the pier often. We will also grab a cup of coffee on the way, it's on me!
My name is Ziwei (pronounced like kiwi with a "z'). I've lived in West LA for almost four years (and sunny SoCal for the past 12 years). I love traveling to new places, but I think exploring is a mindset rather than an activity. This past summer I got to take a two-month leave to travel solo to Europe and China. Meeting new people and exchanging stories and cultures was by far one of biggest highlights. I want to continue doing that now that I'm home through hosting my own Airbnb experience and showing new friends how I see Santa Monica.
We will visit the Santa Monica Pier and maybe walk down to the beach or surrounding streets if time allows.
