Why work in financial services in Shanghai?
Written by Trevor Keidan on July 07, 2017.
Shanghai is best known as China’s global financial hub, one of its largest cities and one of the fastest growing cities in the world with the population exceeding over 24 million people! It is hard to imagine looking across the Huangpu River 20 years ago and not seeing any of the skyscrapers in the financial district today. Nothing is going to stop this exponentially growing financial hub.
From an expat’s viewpoint, you don’t really know what to expect when you arrive in Shanghai. Will I like the food? What are the most exciting things to see? Where will I go? These are some common questions in every expat’s mind when visiting Shanghai. The only way to really see what Shanghai has to offer is to talk to the people that already live there, and lucky for me, our team in the Shanghai office is more than welcoming. They opened my eyes to many beautiful parts of the city including the Bund, Tianzifang, the Old City, Buddhist temples, Nanjing Road and many others! If you are looking for a more relaxed way to spend your day outside of the bustling city, there are areas all around Shanghai to escape like the French Concession, Yu Yuan Garden and countless others that make you proud to call this wonderful place home.
Shanghai has a great deal to offer its considerable expat population. All throughout the city, expats will be able to find international restaurants and bars serving familiar foods that you might be craving from back home as well as street food such as egg pancakes, steaming baskets of dumplings and even pungent tofu for the more adventurous palate! The Shanghai metro is a rapid transit system that interconnects Shanghai, so any destination around the city is accessible and only a few stops away. At each one of these stops, there is always something new to see.
