Shanghai

       

Shanghai has become like a magnet attracting more and more people from both at home and abroad.

Shanghai is a city full of opportunities and challenges. With China’s opening up to the
outside world and entry into the WTO, more and more foreign companies are coming to China. Shanghai, as the economic and finance center of China, attracts tens of thousands of investors both from home and abroad. Shanghai is playing an increasingly important role in the world economy. The rapid development of Pudong New Area, the Zhangjiang high-tech park, the Waigaoqiao tax-free zone, the 88-story Jinmao Building, among others, all show the strong economic strength and the promising future of Shanghai. There is an old Chinese saying: You are able to pick up gold on the streets of Shanghai.
Shanghai will be hosting the World Expo in 2010, two years after the Beijing Olympic Games. At that time, Shanghai will become the focus of the world. Therefore, from now on, Shanghai is plunging itself into the preparation of the 2010 Expo.

Life in Shanghai is both colorful and exciting. You can go for leisurely strolls in the Shanghai Museum, taste cuisine from China or from other parts of the world in restaurants throughout the city. With your local friends, you can have a pot of tea in a quaint teahouse in Yu Gardens, appreciate the unique international architectural style of the buildings in the Bund, take a night cruise on the Hangpu river, or just spend an evening in the taverns on the famous tavern road.

You can also bargain with street vendors at the Xiangyuang clothing wholesale market. Although the street vendors only have a scant knowledge of English, they are quite capable of communicating with international customers from having dealt with large amounts of international visitors who go there to buy clothes.
Eastern and Western cultures come together in this unique city, so you will feel comfortable working, studying as well as living here.
