Paper invites expats to tell their stories

TELL us about your life and experiences in Shanghai.

As the city recaps its achievements in the past five years and maps out the blueprint for the next period, Shanghai Daily plans to run a series of reports exploring how expat life has evolved accordingly.

The series, "Expat and the City," will focus on many aspects of expat life, ranging from the city's English language environment, visa applications and employment to medical services, children's education and social adaptation.

Veteran laowai who have been in the city for years, for example, can voice differences in their feelings from past years, while new settlers are welcome to share stories such as awkward experiences and frustrations.

Shanghai Daily reporters will note down compliments, complaints and concerns and pass them on to government planners.

Interesting stories and quotes are set to be published in the series in the weeks to come.

We prefer personal experiences and vivid examples in your e-mails, with your personal details included as well to support the reports, such as name, age, work status in Shanghai and nationality.

We welcome our readers to participate in our upcoming interactive polls and surveys on our website: or write to us through
