Your true local guide who is fluent in both English and Cantonese dialect will take you through one of the most lively traditional districts in Guangzhou that is filled with vibrant markets and pedestrian streets.

Guangzhou foodie tour is operated in Liwan District in Guangzhou, which is one of the older districts and the heartland of traditional Cantonese culture, where you will find vibrant local life not only on its Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, the oldest pedestrian street in China, but also in the small alleys.

This tour starts with a walk through Guangzhou fish markets, an amazing wholesale market full of live fish and shellfish. You will sample some fresh prawns during the visit before wandering into the backstreets of Liwan to savor more specialties and experience local life and culture.

Highlight of this foodie tour is having dim sum (also know as yum cha) at one of the best Cantonese restaurants in China. If you have always been curious about what dim sum has to offer, then this is for you. Here you will find many unique dishes such as sea cucumber dumplings that even a dim sum connoisseur will be tantalized.
