Only with a black backpack, 23-year-old Wang Congming began her third journey as a couch-surfer in southwest China city of Chengdu. Through living in other people’s homes during the trip, she has visited various paces across China in the past two years. Last year, she spent 272 days as a couch-surfer.

Wang came across the word "couch surfing" while visiting Phoenix Ancient Town in July 2015. She recalled her nervousness of her first night of couch-surfing when she and two other girls crowded in a small room, "Of course I was fearful, I didn’t pay anything after all." But after she spent a safe and good night, she continued her trip in this way from then on.
