About the tour

This virtual experience will immerse you not only into one of the busiest markets of Lima, but also into the oldest of the city. During this visit we will learn about the reality of the markets during the Covid-19 era in Peru, we will discover local products and talk about the “informal vending” , we will also learn about one of the most important immigration stories to Peru, the Chinese immigration. Did you know the 10% of Peru’s population descents from of Chinese immigrants ? We will learn about the deep impact of their culture into our society, in our traditions, culture and specially our local cuisine. Chifa is a classic you have to try while you are in Peru, especially if you are visiting Lima as it is a fusion of Peruvian and Chinese cuisines.
