Shanghai Chopsticks Museum

Mayank Shrivastava
Address: 191, Duolun Rd., near North Sichuan Rd., Shanghai Metro Station: Line 3, DongBaoXing Rd. Timings: Everyday (By prior reservation) Admission: Free Visit this marvel of a museum for its collection of chopsticks and for Lan Xiang. A cabinet in a Jewelry store holds the result of Lan Xiang's 25 year journey across Asia with a collection of 2000 chopsticks. He doesn't have his entire collection on display. His most priced ones are in the bank. If you can't speak PutongHua then go with someone who does and enjoy the octogenarian's animated stories and try to master the art of holding a chopstick correctly. Also, ask him to show you his book: Chinese Chopsticks. This, most probably, will be the most interesting museum you have ever visited.
