Q: I am moving to Shanghai! Would anybody have suggestions on a good location for apartments?

My company has factories about 30 minutes north of the city and they provide a shuttle service back and forth to there from the Shanghai city area.

I am still currently in USA but would like to start checking a few apts. online.

I would appreciate any advise!

I would like to add a couple of things.  I am alone so a small one bedroom with decent proximity to groceries and restaurants.

Hi Victoria,

I think my budget will depend on how much I like the apartment.  I dont want to share my flat with others!.. My company provides a shuttle to the office that is located about 30 minutes north of Shanghai.

I am guessing that 3500 - 5000 rmb might be an approximate budget?

Are you familiar with Shanghai?

as victoria quietly lurks in the underbrush, she sets her eyes on her prize.  she quietly maneuvers undetected, ready to pounce on the innocent expat arriving in her domain...

My friend had a small one bed place near the Shanghai Expo location. Right next to the metro station. 1700 per month excluding utilities.

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
