Shanghai is one of China's most exciting cities both if you are looking to explore local culture or feel right at home with a wide range of expat activities and international events. The scope of your activities in the city will, naturally, depend on your interests, budget and how much time you have to spare. In this article, we take a look at some of the most popular time-killing options in the city for both weekdays and weekends.

Shanghai has long earned the reputation of being a bustling metropolis that is all about long hours at the office, later dinners, and exciting nightlife. But the city also presents its residents with plenty of opportunities to get and stay in shape. Whether you are looking to play football, join a gym or even go mountaineering, you will find all the needed facilities at your disposal plus a group of like-minded individuals to keep you company.

Shanghai has an exceptionally diversified food scene. In this city, you will have your choice of a gourmet meal at a five-star hotel, a steaming bowl of handmade noodles at a nearby eatery or a fresh seafood buffet with the view of the river.

Continuously voted the best city for expats in China, Shanghai is one of the country's most modern, diverse, and cosmopolitan cities. Yet, it's also a city with a rich cultural and historical heritage and learning about the Shanghai's past, customs and traditions would be not only interesting but also highly useful for anyone planning a move to the city.
