      About This Shanghai Tour

      From Bund-style cuisine to street stall specialties, Shanghai pleases everyone’s palate with its eclectic food landscape. The food in this part of China reflects cooking styles practiced in nearby regions, such as Shaoxing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Ningbo, Wuxi, and Nanjing. For three whole hours, you can experience the most authentic tastes of the city, wander around a “secret” local market, and relax in a nearby restaurant for an all-encompassing nourishing experience.

      A veteran food expert is responsible for planning this market meandering tour, which features an ever-changing menu. The ideal way to kick-start your trip in Shanghai (or Hu as it is known for short), this tour will enable you to select the best spots for fine dining and region-specific delicacies. Located on the estuary of Yangtze River, the bustling metropolis is not shy to try out fresh food trends, of which you can learn about.

      Understand why pork plays an integral role in any Chinese person’s diet and the major importance of sharing. A significant part of religious symbolism, food is a glue that holds the Chinese culture together. Take this opportunity to feed your knowledge on Chinese rituals, etiquette, and why most people shopping at Guangyuan Lu Market are aged 55 or above! When your three hours are up, your belly will be full with hongshao rou (red-braised pork belly) and (smoked fish) xunyu.

      Discovering China’s Cultural Heritage through Food

      Did you know that two general components make up a traditional Chinese dish in Shanghai, and the rest of China for that matter? One component is a starch or carbohydrate source, while the other will usually be meat, vegetables or fish. The primary eating utensil is chopsticks and meals do not typically end with a dessert. Instead, sugary or sweet foods tend to be included in the main meal!
