      Question Living in Shanghai

      Have been living in Shanghai for last four months and wanting to meet up with ladies groups during the day but struggling to find any. Are there any other Brits out there who don't work and want to meet up, drink coffee, explore etc.

      Welcome welcome. Afraid I'm further down the road in Thailand.

      You could try http://personals.shanghaiexpat.com/p...6775.wfn-web-5 must be some groups on there I would've thought.

      I don't have children here but I understand that the International Schools are very expensive. Can your husband negotiate help with the fees? Otherwise you could think about putting your child in a local school with a section for foreigners. Suggest you look at www.shfamily.com and www.shanghaiexpat.com Where are you going to be living?

      I would think it would be quite a good place to live with a child. Expat families tend to live in Pudong while the childless live west of the river. Shanghai will probably be like no place you have lived before and can be challenging at first. However, it has got a lot easier and the range of products available has increased enormously just in the few years I have been here. Make sure you join the expat groups such as the Shanghai Expat Association and the British Group. Don't be shy about asking for advice. We have all been there.
