Interaction with Guests
I speak fluently Spanish, English, Chinese and French. I'm fully available to assist my guests with any inquiries and show them where to go and what to see. I have been in Shanghai for 9 years and am active in the creative industry. During the 9 years I hosted lots of friends and colleagues from abroad and toured them around Shanghai as well as other places in China so I could help you plan your trip more efficiently if you need. Since I am fluent in Chinese and understand well how the system works here, I could ease your pain with the bookings and trip arrangement issues encountered due to language barrier and culture difference. Just ask! It will be my pleasure to help : )

Pretty cozy apartment and convenient location. Except that the alley leading to the apartment is a little dim.
I was very lucky to stay at Angis's cozy home even my late request. This home is very pretty and convenient with good coffee. We walked around French Conssion area late at night and returned home on foot. I wish to recommand Angis's home for my friend who have a plan to visit Shanghai.
Angie's apartment is really comfortable. Location is good it's only take 3 minutes to walk to the metro station. The coolest thing is it's has a tiny home cinema and she do has some collection of DVDs like the grand Budapest hotel ! It feels so good after a long time flight and lied down watch a film. Ty Angie!
Angie is a great host who is flexible and super accomodating. I would not hesitate to stay in this cozy, cute and very well located studio apartment next time I am in Shanghai. I appreciated all of the many great dining options within short walking, as well as the bar street yongkang lu.
Angie made me feel super welcome right away! She explained every aspect of the place, and even bought a big jug of filtered water (a must in China). She's devoted a lot of energy to making the apartment maximally livable and personalized. We even asked to stay an extra day, and Angie was amazingly understanding and flexible regarding our change in plans. We followed the recommendations of Pho Real (delicious) and Yu Massage (we went twice). The neighborhood simply can't be beat, neither can the espresso machine. Stay here.
enjoyed staying at Angie`s apartment in shanghai. Her place was amazing and in such a great location, near subway line 7,10 and walkable distance to great restaurants and bars! I did get a chance to meet Angie`s and she friends. really great time. I will again when I go to Shanghai! Thanks! :)

About the Host, Angie
I was born in Taiwan, raised and educated in Buenos Aires and Montreal. Passport-wise I am a Taiwanese Canadian but in reality I am an Asian in blood with a North American mind and a Latin heart! I speak English, Spanish, French and Chinese fluently. I love traveling and have been doing so since I was 17 years old. I am a designer and I run my own design studio in Shanghai. I love nature, culture, philosophy, art and films.
