If you’re heading to Hangzhou for the G20, you’re in safe hands with the city’s all-female patrol. Specially set up to assist visitors over the G20 global financial forum, this 21-strong female unit knows the city inside out.
After months of intensive training, these guards are all set to help visitors, tackle any antisocial behavior and even do a spot of entertaining when the children are playing up!
China Icons joined Zheng Qunfang on patrol around the scenic West Lake. Zheng’s journey to becoming a female ranger was trickier than most. First up, she’s not originally from the city. Plus she has a heart condition and fainted on the first day of training. Today she walks 15 kilometres a day and loves making a difference to the people she meets across the city.
