Shanghai City Info

Shanghai is strategically positioned in the middle of China’s east coastline and the eastern tip of the river of Yangtze. Despite not being the capital of China, it boasts as the city with the largest population in the country. With over 24 million people living in an area of 6,340.5 square kilometers, it lands on the sixth spot as the largest city in the world. It is known as the center of China’s commercial and financial industry, not to mention a popular destination for travelers around the globe. 

With its favorable location, the city was forced to open to the foreign trade after the British victory over China in the First Opium War. Shanghai flourished as a center of trade between the West and East and was the financial hub of the Asia Pacific. In 1949, the Communist Party takeover limited trade to socialist countries, and the city’s commerce declined. The recent economic reforms in the 1990s aided the return of foreign investment and finance to the city, making Shanghai a giant major shipping and trading city today.

Shanghai Red Light District

Shanghai’s Fuzhou Road Red Light District was once Asia’s most infamous RLD. But, in 1949, the Chinese government made attempts on banning prostitution to shut down the trade going all around Shanghai. However, there are now an estimated 21 RLDs in the central districts of Shanghai alone. Establishments in these areas are disguised as hair and massage parlours but these businesses actually cater to clients who want to explore the wild side of the city. Narrowing down the staggering list of Red Light Districts to a list of ten, the RLDs in Shanghai include: 

  • Chaojiadu
  • Jingan District
  • Hanghua regional
  • Meilong
  • Fengzhuang Road
  • West Pearl "Rainbow Bridge”
  • Xianan Road
  • “New Railroad Station”

History of the RLD

Long ago in Shanghai, chains of brothels were just as legal and pervasive as the shrines in the city. Neighborhoods back then were a mixture of business establishments which also cater to paid entertainment, prostitution. Fuzhou Road, the original location of Shanghai’s Red Light District, was lined with brothels, with over 20,000 Girls wearing seductive outfits who would lure men inside for a few hours of hedonistic pleasure. 

In 1949, there was a report that stated there were more than 20,000 prostitutes working in more than 400 brothels, but today these brothels are long gone. Shanghai’s former Red Light District is now considered the city's cultural center. 

Safety Information

Shanghai is surprisingly safe for such a massive city, but there are still some things that one needs to be careful of that are worth mentioning. There’s a good reason why KTV bars that are deserted must be avoided. Another thing to avoid is following someone that says they have pretty girls for you at a certain location. You might get way overcharged for anything they offer, and then muscled into paying. Lastly, as all big cities, be aware of the surroundings and keep a low profile.

Shanghai Adult Entertainment

Due to prostitution and strip clubs being illegal, Shanghai doesn’t have the conventional form of Adult entertainment. You must go to places disguised at karaoke bars to find what you desire. Still, the city offers a variety of vibrant and vivacious places to party and relax. Some of the stimulating entertainment you can expect in Shanghai are hidden strip clubs, street prostitutes, escort services and agencies, and discrete brothels and sex clubs.

Escort Services and Agencies

The list of escort services in Shanghai is practically endless. There is an impressive amount of agencies to choose from, which cater to every taste, every desire, and every fantasy down to the smallest detail. A simple web search will provide you with the contact information for all the agencies.

Street Prostitution

The market for prostitution is Shanghai is enormous, and there is plenty of supply to fill the demand. To find girls on the street who will exchange a little love for some money, go to Nanjing and Fuzhou Roads and walk around. You’ll find many ladies that will offer you “massages” with obvious sexual intentions. Additionally, you can walk around any of the listed Red Light Districts to find many girls walking on the streets.

Shanghai Clubs and Brothels

Even though prostitution, and therefore brothels, are illegal, they are still very prevalent. You can easily locate brothels by the very conspicuous massive window, lit with a neon pink light with a scantily dressed woman sitting inside. Many KTVs, as mentioned above, function as brothels as well.

Strip Clubs

While strip clubs are not popular in Shanghai, karaoke bars like the ubiquitous KTVs, fill the void. There are two types of KTVs; the first type is strictly a karaoke bar, while the second is a karaoke bar that operates in similar ways to a strip club. It extremely easy to determine which one you’re in based on whether or not there are scantily dressed young and attractive girls. The latter type of KTV allows you to hire girls to dance with you and many have extra options that can be made between the girls and customers.

Most gays in cosmopolitan cities like Shanghai live anonymous lives and blend into society.

There is no gay bashing and gays tend to live normal lives without experience much prejudice.
