Expats are spoilt for choice when it comes to apartments. Dotted all over the city, they range from ultra high-end penthouses overlooking the historic Bund, to simpler two-bedroom hideaways in the middle of the city.
These tend to be more centrally located, and is perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in local culture and nightlife.
Serviced apartments are available too, and are popular for newcomers to the city to get settled in. They offer the amenities of a hotel with regular cleaning and laundry and are a great start to get your bearings on arrival to the city. Regular cleaning and laundry with domestic help are very common in Shanghai.
Non-serviced apartments are more common in Shanghai and available at a more affordable price than serviced apartments. Whilst you will have to sort out bills and everyday cleaning yourself, most expats chose this option for the lifestyle of living downtown.
