Q: Are there any decent gyms in central Shanghai that I can pay as I go or on a monthly basis?

I have just arrived in Shanghai and will be staying in the city centre for the next month or two. I am looking for a gym near the city centre, that I can pay a monthly fee to use or else for each visit. I'm not looking for anything particularly fancy, just a decent sized one with some free weights and benches. Any suggestions and details of the typical price per month would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If you have a smart phone, use the app "大众点评“ (Da Zhong Dian Ping) and look for gyms nearby.  Just use a general search term like 健身房  and that aught to do the trick.  You can even use the software to sort the gyms by proximity to your location if you want, in order to filter out the ones too far away. On each gym's page that comes up they will probalby have membership prices listed....  Many gyms offer year memberships (年卡) half year memberships (半年卡), "seasonal cards" (季卡), and even month cards (月卡).  If you're here for more than a month you'll probably be more interested in a seasonal card, which ends up being around 2-3 months. Otherwise you'd have to stack up with month cards which I'm sure would not be cost effective.  


Make sure to pay attention to if any of those cards are on discount!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
