What you'll do

Have been to popular sites? Intimidated by the noisy crowds? This tour will take you to equally fascinating but less crowded spots. Our tour includes a Confucius temple, an authentic yet undisturbed Buddhist temple, a cultural street that's China's answer to Greenwich Villagea, and a creative industiral park at a former butchery yard. Itinerary 1. Confucious Temple Truly a hidden gem. It reminds me of the Chinese saying 'The master recluse finds peace and freedom in the bustling city'. With pagodas, bridges, ponds, and pavilions, this temple is practically a Chinese garden. I was amazed by its calligraphy halls, teapot museum & sculpture hall. 2. Dharmakaya Temple A beautiful Buddhist temple undisturbed by tourists, with sophisticated architecture. The temple contains all the basic elements of a fine temple and also serves as a study center for Buddhist believers. 3. Lunch break with Local Snacks Some xiao long bao, steamed soup dumplings? Or Tan Tan nooddles? 4. Cultural Celebrities Street Once China's answer to Greenwich Village. Strong sense of pride in its building. With amazing antique and calligraphy shops 5. Shanghai 1933 Old Yard A former butchery yard, a fusion of the East and the West: the Basilica front and Chinese Fengshui influence: extensive use of umbrella-like ceilling support and countless bridges. Great view from the top of old Shanghainese blocks.

Haijun

Hello, this is Haijun. I am a TOEFL test-prep teacher and a Traditional Chinese Medicine student. I provide private and customized tours with high quality interpretations that make sense to Westerners. Whether you want to visit popular tourist attractions or crowd-free sites, or have unique local experiences, I have plenty options to suit your need. Though not a licensed guide, I have been showing visiting families of my expat friends around the city in the last 5 years. Since last March, I have been a listed private guide under a travel website. The guests' unanimously positive feedback gives me great confidence in my abilities as a guide. I have strong command of English (a word nerd) and a deep understanding of Western culture. As an avid reader, I know quite a bit of Chinese medicine, history, and culture.

Where you'll be

Our tour includes a Confucius temple which is not your typical temple but more like a quiet private garden, an authentic yet undisturbed Buddhist temple, a cultural street that's China's answer to Greenwich Villagea, and a creative industiral park at a former butchery yard.
