For over 15 years, SmartShanghai.com has been the city's leading English-language online city guide magazine, providing daily updated content and editorial on lifestyle news and events. We host Shanghai’s largest venues directory; Shanghai’s most comprehensive daily events listings; Shanghai’s leading English-language housing platform; Shanghai’s most trusted ticket handling service; a popular online dating community; an online Buy & Sell digital marketplace; and more.
Our singular and (variously) irreverent editorial style and focus, along with our genuine love and passion for living in and writing about Shanghai has enabled us to standout as this city’s first online port of call for residents and visitors looking for insider news and gossip on city life in Shanghai, and just the essential straight-up logistical information about getting around and getting by out there in the big city.
At the risk of tooting out own horn — more so that already, anyways — we're completely self-made. We believe in the strict division of the commercial and editorial aspects of our company. SmartShanghai.com is an independent media publication dedicated to honesty and editorial transparency; these are the principles the company was founded upon 15 years ago and we still adhere to today.
Thanks for visiting! Come back often!
