Learn Chinese in China

Studying at Fudan and living by Nanjing road in Shanghai


Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I will be studying at Fudan this beginning September.

Also, I have a friend who proposed me to go to his apartment one block from Nanjing road.

Do you think that its far?

I'm planning on getting a scooter for my deplacements,

How long would it take me for the trip?

Thanks loads

I think it takes longer than that or have built a line since then.

Some students came to play ultimate frisbee in the middle of the city and was 40 minutes subway and then 30-40 more minutes by bus (because of traffic) if they took a tax it was around 1 hour and expensive.

There are other schools closer to the down town, Jiaotong is closer..

I would go there first and then decide if possible.

Good luck,

Yes. Agree with you.

But there are two main campuses of Jiao Tong. The one you mentioned is in the downtown Xujiahui, but it is a bit small, also very beautifully, with old trees all around.

I am now studying in the other campus of Jiao Tong in Minhang, it is one hour of subway to People Square! But the environment is excellent!

Why not live on campus??

Traffics in China is the only thing I don't understand about China even though I'm a Chinese.

Just keep in mind, if you wanna cross the road, don't use the pedestrian lights- people just drive as if the lights don't exist.
