Next, head to family-run eateries for a rare peek at the city's underground food scene. Locations vary, but you’ll be guaranteed unlimited bites at up to five different delicious food stops. Get a firsthand look at food preparation and learn about the families that have been making classic dishes like yangrou paomo (mutton stew with flatbread) for generations.

Finally, head to a local brewery to drink a fresh print of local brew, or, you’ve opted for a morning tour, sample a classic breakfast platter.
