Is Shanghai still a developing city or a developed city?
Updated Feb 2
Shanghai is a highly developed city. Personally I think Shanghai is the best city in China, maybe also among the top 3 in Asia and it is better than some famous metropolis in America and Europe. Of course if you only measure by the income per person, Shanghai is behind Japan, America and Europe because the average income is only about RMB6000 - 20000 ( about USD1000 - USD 3000) per month, but living costs in Shanghai is also lower .
Shanghai no doubt is much safer than LA, NYC, Paris ,London and many other big cities. Shanghai is also cleaner and more convenient .
Shanghai Starbucks Reserve Roastery is more coffee temple than cafe.
