With a population of about 23 million, Shanghai stands out as the most populous city in all of China. It is also a great financial and industrial center that has attracted professionals and tourists from both in and out of the country. Shanghai boasts a very vibrant nightlife offering a large number of night clubs, restaurants and bars all which attract a large female crowd. However one of the main reasons that make Shanghai one of the most ideal places to meet women in China is the fact that it probably has the largest population of single women in all of China. Its fame for being a thriving city has persuaded many girls to make their way there in order to pursue dreams or look for opportunities, which they could not find in their villages of origin. Now that you know the reasons why Shanghai should be your next travel destination, let´s talk about where you can go looking for your future Chinese wife once you are there.
Shanghai offers a myriad of places and buzzing corners to choose from and one of them is bound to match your style. If you are the romantic type and don´t mind spending a few extra bucks in the quest for your oriental dream girl, then you will definitely want to check out Xintiandi. Xintiandi offers an active nightlife on weekdays as well as weekends, though romantic settings are more common than loud music and dance places. It is considered one of the first lifestyle centers in China and is also home to upcoming designer clothes shops and rich young Chinese artists. Xitiandi´s narrow alleys and candle lit bars will take you back in time and provide the perfect setting for you to reel in any one of the beautiful single ladies that are so frequent there. Keep in mind that Xitiandi is a sophisticated and trendy place, so don´t forget to dress accordingly and make sure that the level of your conversation matches as well. Prefer the ladies that are there hanging out with friends and be suspicious of women walking around alone or in pairs.
If you prefer a more active environment, then Hengshan Road will be the place for you. Hengshan Road is a street in the former French Concession of Shanghai. It was for much of the 20th century the center of Shanghai’s premier residential district. Since the 1990s, many of the mansions along the road have been converted into bars, night clubs, and restaurants, and is one of Shanghai’s more vibrant nightlife districts and popular particularly among expatriates. Here you will find well-known night clubs like Phebe and Zapata, which are famous for their Wednesday ladies night. Don´t forget to hit up the vicinity of Fuxing Park, where you can enjoy clubs like Richy and Muse. These are located on opposite sides of the park and since you are not required to pay entrance fees, it might be a good idea to just hit up both clubs in the same night. Choose the girls carefully here. Make sure they are not being escorted. It is common for older rich Chinese men to visit these places with several younger girls. You will save yourself a lot of trouble if you keep your distance from them. There are also other two places that are very much worth mentioning. One of them is the MINT. This night club will probably be the most beautiful night club you will ever see. It features a huge aquarium tank infested with sharks and is visited by some of the most beautiful women in all of Shanghai. Once again, make sure you dress accordingly if you want to distinguish yourself from all the other foreigners that usually crowd up this place. If you are looking for something a little different, then Mao Live House in north-western Xuhui district might be your best bet. Apart from the excellent location, Mao Live House offers a unique opportunity for electronic and alternative music lovers to meet. These types of concerts are very rare in Shanghai and attract quite a large crowd of different ages. It is the perfect location to meet more alternative-minded Chinese women who will not just be interested in the size of your wallet.
Although Shanghai is a great place to be and offers a great deal of entertainment, there are certain situations you should avoid. Be aware of women who will suddenly stop you in public to start a conversation. Never accept any invitation from them nor follow them anywhere. This will almost always be a scam designed to lure foreigners into overpriced tea houses or restaurants. While in the night clubs, be suspicious of girls who willingly throw themselves at you. Remember that although many Chinese girls are interested in foreigners, they still have their principles. No family girl would ever offer themselves to a stranger no matter how interesting he may look.
Shanghai, once called the sin city of the orient, is a great foreigner-friendly place to start looking for your new Chinese wife or girlfriend. Unfortunately it also has its potential pitfalls, just like any other metropolis does. Most Shanghai women are money oriented and are willing to work very hard in order to achieve their goals. Unfortunately, there is also a fair amount of gals, looking to take the easy way out. Always be cautious and keep an eye open. Somewhere in this jungle of concrete, the Chinese girl of your dreams is waiting for you.
