About Shanghai

Shanghai dazzles as a global hotspot where the old and new come together. Visitors admire the Bund's colonial charm and look out across the river at tomorrow's vision. Among its diverse appeal is the French Concession, a neighbourhood renowned not just for its charming European vibe but also as the lively core of the city's LGBTQ scene.

Here, amid leafy lanes and fashionable shops, a lively yet intimate gay community thrives, offering a welcoming contrast to China's more conservative landscape. Known for sticking together and changing with the times, this small community reflects Shanghai's dynamic spirit, making it a one-of-a-kind, open-minded destination in Asia.
