Unquestionably the best way to experience Shanghai’s treasures is from the streets. What better way to get a sense of the culture than wondering between delicious street food stalls, fascinating trinket shops, markets, restaurants and more. For a good free walking tour organised by locals to the city, we recommend checking out Meetup’s Shanghai Free Walking Tour.
Meetup’s Shanghai Free Walking Tour promises to help you discover Shanghai, from its humble origins as a fishing village to a bustling megapolis, and hear the stories behind how it became one of the most exciting cosmopolitan destinations in the world. The tour lasts 4.5 hours, but you won’t regret spending a bit of extra time to learn about the history, culture, art, architecture and gastronomy of this fascinating and vibrant city. Highlights of the tour include the People’s Square, Shanghai Municipal Government Building, The People’s Park and Shanghai Marriage Market, as well as the best fried dumplings in town, local food market stalls, and the biggest clock in Asia.
