At 8:30 am, meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Shanghai city centre.

First you will visit Caoyang New Village, a local renowned community in Shanghai, which welcomes foreign friends to experience local Shanghainese's life. In their community center, you can see local people's cultural life like how to practice calligraphy, Chinese playing ping pong, local handicraft etc. It is like a window for foreigner to have a further understanding about Shanghaier's daily life.

Then, your guide will take you to visit the nearby wet market to see where the locals shop for their groceries. You’ll notice that the markets in Shanghai have a lot of ingredients which aren’t used outside of China, and your guide will help you explain what everything is.

After that, we will stop by the street stalls and casual local eateries. Along the way, your guide will explain the differences in taste, texture and cooking techniques of China’s bite-size snacks.

Then you will visit a local resident home, sit down with a cup of tea and talk with them with the help of a guide to know about people's life.

Lastly, you’ll have a 1-hour cooking class. During your cooking lesson, a local chef will introduce you some of the different Chinese Wontons, and how to make them. Throughout all the steps included in making these delights, you’ll gain valuable tips from your master instructor and learn about the differences between Chinese and Western-style cooking. You will also have lunch in their house including the wonton you made.

After this last activity, the tour ends and we will bring you back to your hotel.
