Fine Rice Wine Tasting in a Hidden Hutong

Duration: 1 hour

  • An authentic and pleasant tasting experience.
  • Discover the secrets of Chinese rice wine.
  • Relax and have fun, this is like seasoning for your trip.

With a much softer and sweeter flavor than Chinese Baijiu, rice wine is widely appreciated by Chinese people. In just the same way that wine tasting is a must when visiting Bordeaux, trying rice wine when visiting China is a great way to relax and experience a beloved local drink.

Located in a hidden hutong, which is a traditional Chinese alleyway, Nuoyan Rice Wine House offers a pleasant atmosphere where travelers can taste traditional rice wine.

Nuoyan in Chinese means 'promise' and the wine house got its name because of a promise made by the brewer to his girlfriend. You will be served five to six different flavors of rice wine. This experience is perfect for couples who can sip wine together while listening to the brewer's love story. By the end of this experience, you may have forgotten that you are a tourist in this city.


One Hour Spa Session at the 5-Star Sunrise On the Bund Hotel

Duration: 1 hour

  • An excellent spa service with a reasonable price.
  • Relax and reward yourself.

Located in the heart of the North Bund, the 5-star Sunrise On the Bund hotel has both an old Shanghai and European style. Its spa service is one of the best in Shanghai and it is good value for money.

Usually, Shanghai is the last leg of your China tour so put down your backpack, relax, and enjoy some leisure time at the L Spa in the hotel. A 1 hour Imperial Signature Massage revitalizes your muscles while the unique Energy Crystal Steam Room and Japanese-style sauna make you feel refreshed and full of energy.

It is a pleasant reward for yourself after about 10 days of touring in China. Based on our good business relationship, China Highlights gets a good price for the spa.
