When the sun goes down, the woks fire up along the streets of Shanghai’s night markets. See for yourself why no one can resist the temptations of the city’s diverse after dark delicacies. On this tour, we’ll head to two of the city’s liveliest night markets. At our first stop, we’ll sample Shanghai’s famous crayfish and spiced vegetable & meat kebabs, then walk to our next market where we’ll dig into bowls of fried rice noodles, sauteed-to-order veggies and specialty hand-pulled noodles from China’s Muslim minorities.
