The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival has made the difficult decision to postpone for 2020.
We hope you can join a 2021 Margie Burke Books & Tours for a personalised experience of this wonderful festival. Experience exclusive festival events, opening and closing dinners, special cultural workshops, all in a small group!
Named one of the world's five best literary events in 2019 by The Telegraph UK
We're looking forward to the 2021 festival. Stay tuned for more info!
Sadly due to the current situation the 2020 Shanghai International Literary Festival has been postponed.
Our previous tours included hidden treasures of Shanghai, exclusive literary lunches, home-style northern dumpling lunch with Margie’s ‘Shanghai’ family and jazz at the original Sassoon-built Peace Hotel!!
The renowned Festival is China’s leading English-language literary event.
We certainly hope to be back to this splendid festival in 2021. Stay tuned.
Margie is the perfect tour guide - professional, friendly, knowledgeable, thoughtful, well organised
Margie's love of literature is infectious
She's worked in libraries, cultural organisations and schools for over 20 years.
Margie’s experience as a long-term Shanghai resident, her fluency in Mandarin and knowledge of Chinese culture combine to give her unique insights and entree only a local could have. And Margie's Bali connections are strong. Her cousin Janet deNeefe founded the Ubud Festival 17 years ago and looks forward to hosting Margie's group tour with lots of special extras.
