    First off great website! I have been travelling to Shanghai for many years and the insight here is fantastic.

    As state above I travel frequently to Shanghai on business and in most cases travel alone. I have been searching the web to look for female companionship for dinner and to check out the nightlife but what I am finding is “shady”. Any recommendations?

      Frankly speaking, it’s not an easy work to find a satisfying long term companion in short time in Shanghai. If you wanna get a long term companion you can attend some dating shows in Shanghai. If you are lucky enough you will get what you want.
