For most foreign travelers and expatriates living in Shanghai, what arouses their interest most may not necessarily be the well-known tourism spots. It may be a local residential quarter that gives them a taste of how local people live. The Caoyang Neighborhood has given many foreigners the chance to see what real China is, through the program called "To Be a One-day Shanghainese." Model quarters Caoyang residential quarters were built for model workers in the 1950s and won another title - workers' quarters.

The visit starts at about 9:00am. Activities include visiting a local kindergarten and enjoying the performance of the Elder Singing Group. Then housewives will lead you to the wet market to shop for food in the same way most locals do every day. The next step is the most interesting, to learn how to cook Chinese food. Here, jiaozi (dumplings) are a must. Of course, after working, you can enjoy the meal with a local family.
