I will describe recent work in which a concrete and solvable world sheet dual for the tensionless limit (small radius limit) of string theory on $AdS_3\times S^3\times T^4$ is proposed. We consider the background with one unit of NS-NS flux ("k=1") and we find strong evidence that it is dual to the free symmetric product orbifold CFT on $T^4$. Thus one has an example of a stringy AdS/CFT duality where both sides are amenable to analytic control.
