For many people, their home encapsulates their life. No matter how big or small, a home is a direct representation of the homeowner's attitude, their opinions, and their individual aesthetics.

Using the home as a starting point, this compilation is filled with the first-hand accounts of local and international residents who live in Shanghai. People from all professions - office workers, chefs, designers, and even diplomats - describe their daily lives and how they have come to find themselves in this metropolis, whether they reside in small apartments, studio spaces, three-storey lane houses, or modern skyscraper apartments overlooking Pudong's immense skyline. Each resident tells their personal story, offering a unique insight into why so many people from around the world have made their home in Shanghai.

As a member of Shanghai United Media Group, Shanghai Daily was launched on 1 October 1999. It was the first local English-language daily newspaper on the Chinese mainland, and remains the primary source of information for English readers in Shanghai and Yangtze River Delta Region.
