Useful Shanghai Websites

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 - 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! - aimed more at expats with families. - well-established expat-focused website - website attached to That's Shanghai magazine, pretty good editorial 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. - bus routes

Wufantuan - lunch deals for Shanghai


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