Useful Shanghai Websites

Posted by suxiaoya October 13, 2010 in the Group General Discussion .

Hi All,

I thought it would be a good idea to share some useful websites for those who live in or visit Shanghai.

I have started a list below. Feel free to add to it - it's far from comprehensive!

English-language classifieds/events/social websites

smartshanghai.com - probably the most popular events/listings/jobs/dating website for Shanghai's foreigners in their 20s and 30s. Their street map of Shanghai is great, as is the Happy Hour map!

cityweekend.com.cn/shanghai - aimed more at expats with families.


ShanghaiExpat.com - well-established expat-focused website

urbanatomy.com - website attached to That's Shanghai magazine, pretty good editorial

shanghaiist.com- umbrella company is the Gothamist. These guys love to dish the Shanghai dirt.

Other helpful sites

Explore Shanghai - maps for the metro. You can get an accurate estimation on how long it will take to travel between stations.

www.ddmap.com - bus routes

Wufantuan - lunch deals for Shanghai


What other websites do people use in Shanghai? How about Nanjing?
