Choose your tour option and a morning or afternoon departure when you book. Then, meet your guide in Peoples Square in central Shanghai and set off on your 3-hour food tour by subway to Qibao Ancient Town.
Upon arrival, take a stroll along Qibao Old Street, home to many Ming- and Qing-dynasty buildings and architectural styles. Stop for photos on the beautiful stone bridges that span Qibaos canals, and check out some of the many interesting souvenir shops as you walk.
Continue into the southern part of Old Street, famous for its food shops and street snacks, and stop to taste up to eight different specialities from the following selection:
- Haitang cake (sweet cake)
- Crab-meat dumpling
- Tangyuan soup (sticky rice dumpling sweet soup)
- Fried potato balls
- Cooked mutton with sauce
- Colored steamed buns
- Tofu jelly
- Lotus leaf pork
- Beggars Chicken (stuffed, wrapped, and roasted chicken)
- Vegetarian chicken (bean curd roll)
Then, after your 3-hour tour, head for a massage center and enjoy a relaxing 60-minute Chinese foot massage (if option selected).
Your tour finishes after your tea tasting or foot massage when your guide shows you back to the subway station and provides directions to your hotel from there.
