Thoughts on Shanghai?

Great city. Still evolving, but it feels a bit too cosmopolitan. Feels like a global city, meaning, it could really be placed anywhere (unless you start to venture outward).

Isn't the air pollution the worst in the world (except Beijing)?

yes

I see Shanghai in two parts. There's the more developed areas with beautiful buildings and a very modern feeling for a lack of a better word. Then there's places that are less developed with street markets, cheap, but very nice food and old buildings. It's hard to describe because my memory is really bad, but overall it's still my favorite city.

Exciting, like all Chinese megacities, but more accessible than most. Feels a lot less Chinese than Beijing. I prefer Beijing except for the air quality, but I understand why so many foreigners dig Shanghai.

Hookers and DJs
Black market
Louis V
Street food

Thoughts on living in Shanghai? Are there too many seedy areas? I'm considering teaching there after Korea. I love Seoul because it's easy to stay out of the poorer areas. Would the quality of life be similar to first-world for an expat there?

Been there for a good 4 month

Pros
>Nice place
>A lot of things to see
>The food

Cons
>You will no feel like you are in China
>Air pollution in winter
>>
Internet speed is atrocious in Shanghai.
