Founded in 2005, Shanghaiist has emerged as one of the most popular English-language websites about China, covering local news, events, food, and entertainment for a diverse audience of young and affluent urbanites.
Driven entirely by word-of-mouth, Shanghaiist has grown steadily year-on-year to reach more than 3 million unique visitors and 6 million pageviews each month across all of our digital properties.
Forbes called Shanghaiist a “sophisticated, deliciously urbane city blog.” The New York Times thinks we are “ever-excellent.” And Yahoo! said the site contains “the local scoop on Shanghai, including news, commentary, reviews, events, and more.”
Shanghaiist readers are young, hip and upwardly mobile — the kind of audience advertisers love. The site has become a daily “must read” for thousands of Shanghai residents and “China watchers” around the globe.
