What you'll do

What better way to explore one of the last remaining hidden sites—not yet touched by modernization—than by having an indigenous inhabitant tell you stories about the history and evolution of this great city. I am a local Shanghainese—born, and lived here all my life. I will lead you through th​e narrow streets of a town called Xinchang, 18 miles from downtown Shanghai, a once-thriving port with an 800-year history. It has managed to maintain most of its old buildings and population. Besides walking around the town landmarks, we will visit a traditional Chinese tea house where Ang Lee used as scenes for ' Lust Caution' . Finally, your taste buds will experience some delicious local food, so you can immerse yourself deeper into local life. In just a few hours, we will explore a very different face of Shanghai that makes this city so unique. We'll be off the beaten path for this multi-themed and entertaining experience.Besides this tour, we offer 3 other tours: -SUZHOU: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/724321 -HANGZHOU: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/399291 -Shanghai Day Tour: https://www.airbnb.cn/experiences/1062142 10% discount for group of 5 or more,just ask for it!

Where you'll be

Here's peace of mind for you: I can offer pickup and drop off by private vehicle from any location(hotel/residence/airport) in Shanghai at no extra charge. I'll bring you to directly to Xinchang, probably the most authentic old town in Shanghai , far from the touristy area. I will lead you through meandering old lanes, we'll sip tea at a tea house by the canal where Ang Lee movie was shot,and have a sumptuous lunch with local delicacy
