Suitcase too packed? Fret not, this apartment has all your must-have western amenities and comforts you need to feel at home.

Experience a local lane house exterior, with neighbors cooking as you walk up a historic staircase. Once at your firetruck red door on the second floor, enter into a modern western studio. Sit at the high desk and get work done on your laptop while watching TV. Don't feel like going out? Cook at home. Take a lazy Sunday and make yourself breakfast in bed.

The room has a A/C and heater unit to keep you comfortable no matter the weather. Equipped with the fastest internet available, allowing you to work from home.

Household items included in your booking: wifi router, tall desk with 2 stools, flat screen tv, hot plate, pan, cutlery (2 sets), spatula/wooden spoons, handheld clothing steamer (better than an iron), hair dryer, wall A/C/heater unit, mattress w/foam topper, sheets (duvet, bottom sheet, duvet cover, pillow cases), towels (2), pillows (2), mini-fridge, wall closet, water kettle, washing machine, clothing hangers, HDMI cable (to watch on the tv from your laptop) - everything you need to simply move in!


Grab a coffee before work at one of the many coffee shops and cafes nearby. Head down your street to iapm mall for an international supermarket, Starbucks, and many chain restaurants. A block farther is a post office should you want to mail anything home. The apartment is close to many parks, where you can hang out and enjoy the outdoors or go for a jog. If you're feeling a lazy day in, my guide has tips on how to order in food and drinks.

The list of recommended attractions below are accessible by foot or a short 20 RMB cab ride. Welcome to the heart of Shanghai!

Wander around the French Concession
A residential area of Shanghai once designated for the French, the French Concession is famous for its cafes, tree-lined avenues, and tudor houses. These surround the apartment and I have specific suggestions of streets I suggest you visit.

Bund/Shanghai Skyline
A waterfront area in Shanghai that run along the Huang Pu River and is one of the most popular tourist spots. Being a former International Settlement area, the bund houses dozens of historical building and is famous for the Art Deco architectures.

Yongkang Lu/Top Bars
The famous outdoor drinking street (Yongkang) and other major nightlife attractions are within walking distance (I will send you a full list upon confirmation)

Tianzifang is known for small craft stores, coffee shops, trendy art studios and narrow alleys. It has become a popular tourist destination in Shanghai, and an example of preservation of local Shikumen architecture.

This former neighborhood of old Shikumen has been reincarnated into Shanghai’s glitzy and contemporary district featuring fine restaurants, upscale clubs and boutiques

Apartment guide comes with all my suggestions for exploring Shanghai, including best western and Chinese bars and restaurants (and suggested evenings combining the two) and a tourist one day in Shanghai guide for when you a little time off.

I love this city, know it well, and want to make sure you have a great experience here :)
