The light, the sounds and the thrills can all be found in Shanghai. There are restaurants, bars and night clubs that stay open until the early hours of the morning. Going out and enjoying your spare time with your co-workers or your new friends is custom here. Relationship building is what it is all about. Drinking and eating are the two most important things because basically, when you here the Chinese speak, they are mostly talking about the places they have been, the food they have tried, the restaurants that they think are fabulous. It seems like everything and every place is famous.
There are literally thousands of places to go in the night supplying enjoyment for a city with more than 30 million people. It’s no wonder why people love living in China when you have a city like Shanghai.
Chinese and most Asian countries believe that you work hard during the day and party hard in the night. Even though a lot of the partying is for pleasure, it is also a great way to build relationships with everyone or to meet new business contacts, even though most Chinese prefer not to talk about business when they are having fun, business is for the daytime, not night. The younger generation generally gets very involved in the night life of bar and clubs. The older generation do as well but take up a calmer approach to partying. Smoking, drinking, eating, KTV or tea-houses, where it is a little quieter and more relaxed.
Shanghai is another one of those cities that never sleeps, between bars and clubs staying open all night or massage places where you can relay back and relax with a full body massage or just to get your feet done. Street vendors make “grabbing a bite” easy as you are on your way to another club.
