4-Hour Shanghai Old Town Tour with Cricket Fighting Culture Experience

This family friendly private Shanghai Old Town tour takes you to see a kaleidoscopic sequence: luxuriant old mansions, markets, old city wall, old streets, hidden alleyways, street food as well as to learn about interesting cricket fighting culture. Cricket fighting was nurtured by Tang Dynasty emperors more than 1,000 years ago, and later popularized by commoners. It is now undergoing a revival among a younger generation eager to embrace genuinely Chinese pastimes.
