Greet your guide and small group outside the subway station and head out into the bustling streets and alleyways of Liwan. Start with a stroll through the fish markets, a wholesale market full of live fish and shellfish—the perfect spot to sample salt and pepper prawns.

The precise itinerary changes daily, but you might well try pan-fried dumplings, succulent roast duck, Cantonese cakes from historic bakeries, and desserts made from buffalo milk or glutinous rice.

One reliable highlight is dim sum at one of China’s finest Cantonese restaurants. Enjoy a classic Cantonese dumpling feast and discover connoisseur dishes like sea cucumber dumplings. After your tour ends, your guide can provide directions to the nearest subway station or help you get a taxi back to your hotel.
