How much do you love Shanghai? (1~100%) What do you like about it?
It’s my hometown I mean. I was born and raised in shanghai and I feel so proud of it. I lived in a unique style of shanghai architecture called “Shikumen” when I was a kid, the style you can find in “Xintiandi” and “Tianzifang”. I’ve shown 2 foreign friends there and they all think that rocks!
Apart from amazing architecture, the food, transportation, education, entertainment in Shanghai is also great. The reason I give 99% is because the weather makes it 1% off… Shanghai sometimes gets too cold and hot in winter and summer. But it almost can be ignored since nothing in the world is perfect, but Shanghai is near perfect, right?
Your favorite area in Shanghai?
Too many… My old house was near 1933, so maybe it can count as one of my favorites. Also the Bund in Huangpu area, Hengshan Road in Xuhui area.
Why do you want to be a volunteer of Shanghai Greeters?
Since I was born and raised in shanghai and I love the city so much, I would like all foreign friends who feels also interested in Shanghai’s culture to know about and fell in love with this amazing city.
