Description

Start your live streamed tour from the Confucius Temple, a 700-year-old temple in the downtown area. As you observe the traditional Chinese architectural design of this temple, I will explain the reason behind the specific design style of ancient buildings that were dominant in the ancient Chinese culture.   We will visit the temple from inside as well, where I will further explain you the ancient Chinese culture and traditions. 

Next, we will walk through the old neighbourhood to witness the lives of the locals that you can't access by yourself.  We will also stop at a local Shanghainese restaurant for some authentic specialties and I will show you the must-try dishes. You will also see the real time process of making the authentic Chinese soup dumplings in the restaurant by local chefs.
