Living in Shanghai:

In Shanghai, I have often heard that Shanghai and China are not the same, it is quite easy to sustain a Western lifestyle whilst living in Shanghai. The famous district “French Concession” offers a great variety of small boutiques and shops, residential buildings and beautiful avenues. Here, you will also find many international restaurants and bakeries, cultural events and even a German school. Except for the taxi drivers, many local people in Shanghai speak English. Taking the metro is quick, cheap and easy. The city of Shanghai has 22 million inhabitants and it is as large as the German Saarland. During the first few months of their stay in Shanghai, many pilots choose to be accommodated in a hotel somewhere near the company. The average room rate of such hotel amounts to approximately €1300 per month. If you prefer to stay in a serviced apartment, various accommodation are available at an average rate of €1500, which is only half as much as you would have to pay if you were staying in an apartment in Hong Kong or Singapore for example

If you think that this contract might be of interest to anyone that you may know, please forward my contact details to them or ask them to forward the above mentioned documents to me as soon as possible;

Thanking you in advance for your help and I look forward to hear from you soon.
