Shanghai: Food and Culture Tour

Immediately upon arriving from the port, this walking tour leads to an enjoyable Shanghai style dim sum (steamed chicken) dish. You're then escorted to the waterfront pre-1949 building district of Bund Shanghai's most popular destination. Next is a fun visit the Silk Museum to learn how the luxurious fabric is produced from the silkworm. Thereafter, taste famously prepared chicken that is said to rival American made KFC, before visiting Xintiandi for a shopping and coffee break. Travelers who prefer to actively see landmarks while tasting dishes along the way will enjoy this Shanghai tour.

Your English-speaking guide will be pleased to escort you to taste Xiaolongbao: steamed chicken made from a secret ancestral recipe. Customarily, there is a line for this particular vendor's dim sum, known for its delicious flavor.

Once nourished, you'll visit the Bund, where nearly three miles of waterfront buildings from the 1930s and 40s once hosted international financial and commercial centers. Today, it is a popular area for tourists and locals alike to walk, shop, and appreciate the architectural history.

Soon after, you'll reach the Jiangnan Silk Museum to learn and see how the famous fabric is produced. Upon learning silk history and seeing the craftwork, there is an opportunity to purchase authentic silk goods.

Next comes a visit to a chicken stand that has been preparing a secret recipe for seven decades. Supposedly, the recipe is so delicious and well regarded, it is only shared with male, bloodline relatives. Taste for yourself to determine if it rivals America's KFC chicken.

Thereafter, you'll be escorted to the upscale, car-free shopping district of Xintiandi, meaning New Heaven and Earth in Chinese. Here, you're afforded the opportunity to shop and enjoy a coffee prior to returning to port. Reserve this unique Shanghai tour today.
