Shanghaiist is part of Gothamist LLC, the most visited network of city blogs on the Internet today. Founded in 2005, Shanghaiist has emerged as one of the most popular English-language websites about China, covering local news, events, food, and entertainment for a diverse audience of young and affluent urbanites.

Driven entirely by word-of-mouth, Shanghaiist has grown steadily year-on-year to reach more than 2 million unique visitors and 4 million pageviews each month by mid 2015.

Forbes called Shanghaiist a "sophisticated, deliciously urbane city blog." The New York Times thinks we are "ever-excellent." And Yahoo! said the site contains "the local scoop on Shanghai, including news, commentary, reviews, events, and more."

Shanghaiist readers are young, hip and upwardly mobile — the kind of audience advertisers love. The site has become a daily "must read" for thousands of Shanghai residents and "China watchers" around the globe.
