  • Learn the philosophy and practice of Chinese medicine
  • Visit to the largest open air food market in Shanghai
  • Experience Chinese food at its distinctive taste
Chinese medicine recognized the connection between food and health many years before the first frozen yogurt drink went on sale in the West. It is now accepted wisdom in the West that food and health are related. Traditional Chinese medicine, however, has long recognized a relationship between food and overall well being, and specific foods will often be recommended as part of the treatment for certain disorders. In China food therapy is a practice in the belief of healing through the use of natural foods instead of, or in addition to medications. The best way to learn this philosophy and practice of Chinese medicine is to join us for a visit to the largest open air food market in Shanghai which has survived till today against the trend of air conditioned supermarkets. If you want to experience the sights and smells of a wet market which hasn't really changed much over the years this is a must visit site.

Here you will find fresh vegetables from local farms, homemade stinky tofu, live chickens, birds, eggs, live fishes, and an array of spices which gives Chinese food its distinctive taste. See whether you can spot any century eggs while walking around the market. Here you will also find fresh Chinese fruits, tea and kitchenware. You may get a feel of old Shanghai while walking through the narrow lanes listening to the vendors yelling out their bargains after the morning rush. This huge wet market is one of the few spots relatively untouched by tourists with a vast expanse of fresh produce. In the end of the tour, we will also walk into the hidden backstreets of the old town to learn about its interesting history and the way local lives.
