Living in Shanghai is like…

coffee
Good coffee is rare and expensive in China! But when you find that perfect coffee shop in Shanghai, you will be in heaven…

#1 International Literature

Getting really exciting about finding a bookshop only to realise while browsing inside, that they only sell Chinese books.

#2 Being a Foreigner

People either staring at you in fascination or ignoring/being rude to you, because you’re a foreigner.

#3 Fake Everything

When you don’t believe any branded items to be real anymore. Not even inside a ‘normal’ shop.

#4 Rain & Traffic

Knowing that you won’t get a taxi or will be stuck in traffic forever, because it’s raining.

#5 Toilets

Picking a restaurant based on its bathroom standards.
