What you'll do

**Authentic and A La Mode** - Being Shanghainese for a DAY First thing first, MEET with ME, your authentic Shanghainese best friend! We will watch the Shanghainese Ayi (aunties) conduct their daily wet market bargaining, and get our fair share through ordering authentic breakfast in Shanghainese. Strolling down the colonial district, we will visit the Shanghai version of Flat Iron building and a Venus Garden one wouldn’t dream of in the center of the city. We can go visit where China’s great leader Mao has lived while in Shanghai. Grab a drink at the biggest Starbucks reserve in the world, or chic young ladies’ favorite tea drink. Taking a 7-min ride on metro, and go see People’s square, where there are so many people crossing the streets that there is traffic control from dawn to dusk. We will pick up some freshly-made Shanghainese sweets, and head to the best modern art museum on the bund. MOMA and Guggenheim, now here. Enjoy a drink at its well-kept secret terrace while taking it all in. This is what it’s like to be (or just…taken around by) a Shanghainese for one day! *If we're lucky, even meet with my dad, a true Shanghainese Gentleman who might drive us around in his MERC!

Oranda

Hi, I am Oranda, a bona fide breed of Shanghainese. I left investment banking to be a service designer. A resident for over 18 years, I know at heart where the cream of crop spots are in Shanghai. I have had my fair share of indulgence in food, arts, music etc.. Ask me about almost anything in Shanghai, I promise to deliver...99%. Living internationally expanded my horizon, and also made me appreciate the city I call home more every day. Learn to speak some basic Shanghainese with me, and let me, your Shanghainese best friend, take you to explore the city like we mean it.
