    Which University in Shangai ? If it's Tsinghua go for it, it's a world class university, as a city shanghai is great, and the standard of living are much higher.

    I'm not familiar with either universities but Shanghai is very cosmopolitan (think skyscrapers, lots of skyscrapers) but also has some lovely ancient culture mixed in too. The standard of living in generally high but cheap if you know where to go

    Most part of Shanghai has standard of living up to western standard. You'll find poor place far from the city center.

    :rolleyes:

    The hygiene etc. is probably the same and your quality of life will depend on how much you splash out (£££)/ where you're located. The rich, in Asia (both China and India), live very well. But you should try and get more info, I guess, e.g. where you'll be living exactly. Also, I think the Indian university is better known.

    EDIT: I am so envious of you.

    That's in Beijing...


    Hey, OP, I've been to both. I loved Shanghai, disliked Mumbai. I also have a Japanese friend who went one year to Mumbai, he really disliked it too.
    But at the end of the day, it depends on what you want. Shanghai is like a business city, it's modern, fun, etc. I loved it there because it's exactly the kind of city I like - mind you, it's the most "modern city" in Mainland China - by that I mean it's very very international. (Not counting HK, and not considering Taiwan as part of China.) So I don't consider it to be the "average Chinese experience." It's a lot less traditional than Beijing for example.

    Mumbai... Mh, I think it's also a great city, but it broke my heart. The amount of poverty, the danger everywhere, the crazy things they do there... Maybe I was too young (16), but it was a hard place to get used to. I think one can come to love India, most of the others loved it, there's an enormous amount of color, of life, the Indians are genuinely friendly too (btw, Shanghai people are city people, and they're also business people, they're considered to be some of the most unfriendly people in China) but the contrast between rich and poor is appalling. Another thing that's good though about India - no government coming into your life all the time, no need for a VPN, you don't have people telling you where to go or what to do.

    Hope this helps!

    EDIT: Oh and quick note about food. Both are delicious, but Indian food in Mumbai is extremely spicy in my opinion. The guys on the trip used to joke about the "ring of fire" (i'll let you guess what that is.) In Shanghai, the food is delicious, sweet and steamed. Food is important when you're living there!
