Shanghai is China's most Westernised city, and the most welcoming for expatriates. It is a fast-paced bustling city with a vibrant night-life including theatre, restaurants and nightclubs. The shopping is excellent and anything that can't be found, can be made by China's finest tailors. The international school system is still developing, but the American School has comprehensive facilities and a laudable high school. The only stumbling block that most expats seem to come across is the language barrier, and you will find that you will have to learn at least the most basic of Mandarin.
