As a local shanghainese, I have seen Shanghai change a lot in 3 decade. More metropolises instead of old shanghai style; More high-rise instead of shanty town.
It's easy for everyone to see Shanghai's fancy but you wont see a real shanghai without an insiders. Today I am going to take you to discover a real Shanghai.

Itinerary

We will start from a famous food street and you will taste local breakfast. The egg pancake, sticky rice roll, bean milk, deep fried "ghost" all for you to choose.
Wet market and birds market was a part of life for locals however that is almost disappeared gradually. During the tour, you have chance to see precious markets and learn rich culture about cricket fight, Chinese bonsai, and orioles bird.
After that you will cross over the last old section in downtown center. There are lots of local food hidden in the allay way. You have chance to try signature wanton soup, fried dumping and sticky rice ball.
Later we will visit 700 years old Confucians temple.
Confucius is considered the greatest of the ancient Chinese sages. You will learn Confucian's doctrine and experience Confucians tea ceremony here.
Last we are going to try best soup dumping in the town.
