Discover Shanghai's History at This Interactive Orientation

When you think of Shanghai, what immediately comes to mind? The Pearl Tower, the Bund, Tianzifang or perhaps the Former French Concession? 

How about the Old City walls, the "Golden Era of Shanghai," or the stories unfolding over the last century that have led to the sights and sounds we have now in Shanghai? What exactly happened in those years that made Shanghai what it is today?

There must be something about this cosmopolitan city that has captivated and led you here (or perhaps even kept you here 'til this day)! Why not take the opportunity to embark on a experiential journey to go beyond what you see every day in Shanghai?


Join TEC for their upcoming two-day special TEC Talk on January 15 and 18 to learn more about this very city you're living in! 

The Expatriate Center (TEC) is excited to launch a whole new series, TEC TALK | Shanghai! in 2020. This program is specially designed for those who are new to Shanghai, or for those who simply are curious to find out more about the city! 

To kick off the series, the first session is based on the topic "The Rise of The Bund ." Learn more about the history of Shanghai, what happened to the city walls (they were circular!) and how the various former concessions evolved and developed to make Shanghai what it is today through a two-day interactive orientation program.
