Enjoy Cantonese Morning Tea and Culture with local

Enjoy Cantonese Morning Tea and Culture with local starts from 9:30 in the morning, and all guests should arrive at Exit H, Tiyu Xilu Station (subway line 1&3) before 9:25.  Then your guide will take you to the teahouse by 3 minutes' walk. Each guest will be provided "one bowl and two pieces" (it means one cup of tea and two kinds of dim sums), which is the traditional way of eating morning tea. By the way, the dishes can be chosen by your preference. And please inform your guide in advance if you are on a special diet, like vegetarian, pork or beef free. Your guide will share the morning tea culture in Canton, including how to wash the dishes, how to pronounce every dish in Cantonese (local language), and the custom and habit of local people. The reason why morning tea has become a distinct characteristic is because it’s a social activity to strengthen bonds of family and friendship for Cantonese. So apart from food, the experience focus more on sharing culture and lifestyle. Your guide will share the experience of living and working in Guangzhou, and you are also welcomed to share these in your city and your country. After the breakfast/brunch, your guide will accompany you walk around the community and the area, letting you experience the relaxed and authentic local life and appreciate the skyscrapers of the CBD.
