Shanghai > People Square

Trip Details:

Not far from the bund are those lane houses and humble local shops that make you feel like you're getting to know the "real" Shanghai.

During this breakfast tour, we will wander through the streets between the Bund and People's Square to glimpse into daily scenes of local life in these soon-to-disappear Shikumen.

Along the way, we will taste the authentic flavors of Shanghai's breakfast including Shengjian, Xiaolongbao, Jianbing, soup dumplings, baozi, and more. All well selected local shops run & operated by locals for decade, where you will have a chance to get to chat with them a bit about their daily routine as well as their life and dreams live in this big city.

We will then head to People Square matchmaking corner kind of an offline Tinder! Where parents come hoping to find suitable partners for their unmarried children.

Diverse local dishes displayed on a food tour, showcasing a range of colorful and appetizing culinary specialties, inviting a gastronomic exploration.


Lilong is a type of residential community or neighborhood composed of long rows of Shikumen houses, rowhouses, or apartment buildings. These houses often have a stone gateway leading into interconnected courtyards with residences. They are a symbol of traditional Shanghai living and are becoming increasingly rare as the city modernizes.

Vibrant street scene of a Shanghai food tour, featuring diverse local cuisine at bustling market stalls and eager food enthusiasts exploring the flavors.
