Shanghai Import Expo Update: New Closings and Adjusted Hours

By That's Shanghai, November 3, 2018

The upcoming China International Import Expo (CIIE) has brought in scores of important figures from across the country and abroad, and with it come some substantial changes for Shanghai residents - at least for the next week or so. The expo will run from the Monday November 5 through to Saturday the 10, and while a handful of clubs and restaurants have announced they'll be closing early or entirely during this period, we expect more to come. Here's the current list of adjustments:

On a strikingly different note, there will be a week-long daytime festival on the Bund hosted by Jazz at Lincoln Center, from tomorrow to Sunday the 10, with free entry and free-flow beer from 3pm-6pm. 

We'll continue to update this list as the week progresses, but as others have mentioned, we strongly suggest you have some form of identification on you at all times. For foreigners, that means best to carry your passport or a copy of it. There has been a security personnel increase, random police checks in train stations and major intersections and heightened security measures at some hotels. Some people will also be getting days off work
