      About This Shanghai Tour

      From Bund-style cuisine to street stall specialties, Shanghai pleases everyone’s palate with its eclectic food landscape. 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. A significant part of religious symbolism, food is a glue that holds the Chinese culture together. This tour will enable you to understand why pork plays an integral role in Chinese diet, as well as the importance of sharing within the Chinese culture. 

      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) xun yu.

      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.
