I am considering a job opportunity in Shanghai and my employer has granted me a "Look & See" trip together with my girlfriend. We are hitting Shanghai by the end of April / early May. Unfortunately no Internations Event are taking place at that week if I am not mistaken (otherwise please let me know).
Question to the community: With hindsight and the experience you already gained by living in Shanghai, what would you recommend to see in one week?
We are two mid twenty / early 30 Swiss guys who have lived in South East Asia already for two years. On our list we have the following:
- Metro and other public transport - Few Restaurants and bars - Supermarkets (to get an idea of variety of goods and respective prices - Taxi rides - Housing (any suggestion for a good agent are welcome!!!) (- my office & work place obviously)
Schooling and other kids places are not needed. I might be working in Pudong area and usually do not like to commute for too long.
All suggestions, hints and tips are most welcome, regardless of importance or length :) Also if someone is around for having a drink and wants to share some stories and advices, then you are gladly invited to do so.
