      About This Shanghai Tour

      Here's an opportunity for you and your group to discover Shanghai like insiders. A chance to learn what the locals know, get the layout of the city, and gain insight into the local culture, so you feel less like a tourists, and more like you've been here before.

      Your Welcome to Shanghai tour begins with a meeting with a local expert who's a wealth of information you won't find in travel brochures and tour itineraries. Your guide will brings maps, schedules or events, and much more information to give you a leg up.

      At this time you can bring up any particular places you have in mind, or areas of interest you'd like to know more about – whether it's going to the Bund, visiting the Jade Buddha Temple, walking along Xin Tian Di or Nanjing Road, or anything else.

      Part two of your Welcome Tour is going out with your guide on a walking tour of what is around where you're staying. Fun places to see. Good places to eat. And the opportunity to practice the Chinese phrases you just learned, while you still have your guide with you.

      By the time you're done, you and your group will be ready to discover Shanghai in a fresh, new, and amazingly exciting way. Like a local.

      Street food

      Street food in the west is basically hot-dogs, pretzels, and churros. In Shanghai, they've taken it to a much higher level. With so many migrants from all over China, street food in Shanghai is a smorgasbord of tasty choices like pork dumplings (xian long bao), rice ball with duck egg and pork (ci fan tuan), radish fritters (you dunzi), scallion pancakes (cong you bing), and much more. You can eat like a king and never set foot in a restaurant.
