This is a great tour for those that don’t want the typical tour. Winter picked me up from my hotel and took me straight to a local wet market where he happily answered all my questions and provided lots of information about what was there and how things are used. He was more then happy to buy things for me to try along the way. After the market, we took a relaxing stroll through some Buddhist temples, second hand markets and a Chinese medicine centre where he explained all the items used. We then headed to the nunnery, where Winter gave me the run down on correct protocol of eating there. This was truly the highlight of the tour. Traditional home cooked food served in a temple by nuns. The food was absolutely delicious and from what I’m told changes daily. After lunch, Winter took me to a local Taoist temple for tea. This was a great experience because this is where the locals drink tea and I felt like a local. After a good chat and lots of tea Winter helped me get back to my hotel. This tour is fantastic for those that don’t want the tour experience that has the guide with a flag and very structured. This is for those that want the unique, relaxing and mingle with the locals experience. I would highly recommend!
