Life in Shanghai - Hi,

Can anyone describe life in Shanghai? Differents between city center and suburbs. How much it costs? Are there many places to work? How hard is to find a job?
Are there any interesting places, which should be visited?

Life in ShangHai - I am not a Chinese living in ShangHai, but I heard of many things about it. What impress me most is the skin color of ShangHai girl is very white. The reason is there are too many bleaching powder in their tap water.

Lol :-D

- Haw-Haw,The reason is there are too many bleaching powder in their tap water--it is a joke.the ShangHai girls' skins is while,but not while than western.And the reason which them like a white skin is it looks beautiful as them consider.
I didn't know everything in ShangHai,But I know the price of rent house is the hightest in China,it even highter than BeiJing.ShanHai is one of the most beautiful citys in China ,particularly in the evening.I think it is not hard to find a job if your English is fluent and you can take the charge of being a language teacher.In all,ShangHai is a international city.
