Xizang Lu Bird Market
Shanghai's Xizang Lu Bird Market is known as the flower, bird or insect market. Indeed, the market is overflowing with small animals like birds, cats, rabbits, mice and even insects.
All these types of animals are adopted as pets by the Chinese who lavish attention on them and groom them with care. Crickets are kept in cages and fed in order to train them to fight, or simply for the beauty of their song. A tour of Xizang Lu Bird Market is a great way to learn about Chinese practices in a popular Shanghai spot.
