Are you curious about Shanghai’s nighttime food scene? As the the sun sets and the woks fire up along the city’s fast-disappearing food streets, you’ll sample authentic dishes from several vendors, restaurants and local eateries – all of which adds up one delicious Shanghai supper.

What To Expect

The tour starts near Laoximen Metro line, we'll walk through the Old Town and explore tasty dishes that the city has to offer.

While walking along the tour route in Shanghai's Old Town, you'll see how locals live and eat in some of the city's oldest neighbourhoods – before the wrecking ball turns this area into high-rise apartment buildings. This tour is a raucous good time that offers the largest sampling of food and drinks of any of our tours.

Whether it's cracking spicy crawfish with plastic gloves on or seeing a water snake's final moments, you'll love this feast for the eyes and the mouth.

Enjoy the cumin-laced flavors of the farflung Western province of Xinjiang. The Muslim minority there specializes in lamb kebabs, and an excellent diced noodle dish with an onomatopoeic name.

Wash it all down with baijiu – you've never had anything quite like this before. Plus get sauced on the local beers with your new foodie friends.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
