Next visit a local traditional Shanghai family to listen to their stories. Have lunch there. Normally, the family will prepare local foods for the lunch, however, you are welcome to tell us what you want to eat. If you are interested in foods, you can help them in cooking.

You can even learn some of the local dialect during your short stay. Head to a local market then where the locals buy their daily needs and see them bargain at the different vendors.
