What you'll do

Meet your guide at an easy-to-find central location then walk and explore the quaint neighborhoods and streets of Shanghai. Try the best local food in the city at family-run places where only locals go that are truly off the beaten path. While visiting over 5 food stops, learn about the families that have been making their specialties for generations and learn about the foods that locals love and why each dish and restaurant became so popular. Start by walking through pedestrian streets that come alive with fresh, handmade (and safe) street food only served during the morning. Watch China’s most popular breakfast items prepared before eating them including fried scallion pancakes, jianbing (savory Chinese crepes), and youtiao (Chinese doughnut sticks). Visit a local wet market to see locals bargaining and buying fresh produce, and see what’s in season. Walk through some of Shanghai’s oldest residential communities to see how locals live their lives every day and learn about this interesting and historic area from your local insider to get a feel for how locals have lived their lives in Shanghai for generations. End your morning by exploring a local temple, tickets included.
