The ancient town of Nanxun, which means “south of the water,” is highly rated due to its stunning architecture and magnificent gardens. Wealthy silk merchants eventually retired here, bringing with them a western influence. Shanghai and Beyond will guide you through domestic architecture to private venues for locals, including an exclusive retirement community of former high-level government employees, teachers, and civil servants. We’ll tour the residence as the retirees share their wisdom and stories, and engage in a team-building activity.
Rather than a formal lunch, a food tour will allow you to sample local specialties including our favorites, some choices for the brave at heart. We’ll have a crash course on bubble tea and a finale of baijiu to help with our digestion!
