Many questions for families who come to Shanghai
Whether Shanghai is the destination of your dreams, or your company requires you to come over here for a while, if you move with your family to a whole new country it might appear like a mammoth task at first – and it actually is. Many questions will come to mind. Where can my family live safely? – Where will the kids go to school? – How to get around in a city that is bigger than some European countries? – How much will the monthly cost of living be? – How much will be needed to rent a house? – How to protect from / escape Shanghai’s smog? – and for sure many more.
All of these must be answered individually for you – hence the internet will be of little help. Answers will depend on your workplace, on your children’s educational background and ambitions, on the standard that you are used to from your previous location, and on your criteria with regard to what makes a good home – Potential for relaxation? The foundation to forget about your job during the evenings and weekends? Do you value space higher than luxury? Function over style? Do you want to dive into authentic local lifestyle, or do you prefer to have many other expats around you?
