The August issues of That’s BeijingThat’s GBA and That’s Shanghai are out now, in both paper-and-ink form citywide and digital PDF form on our website. Here, Editor-in-Chief Ryan Gandolfo introduces the magazines:

When I first moved to Shanghai in 2008, That’s was an all-around life hack and fun guide to the city’s biggest events and foodie (and boozy) openings. 

Fast forward 12 years and the magazine has grown and adapted to an ever-changing market. While we still keep you informed on what’s happening in your city via our digital platforms, the magazine has shifted to better suit English readers all across China – becoming a nationwide magazine. You’ll find less about upcoming concerts (trust us, there aren’t many these days) and more in-depth features diving into aspects of China’s rich culture, society and economy. We’re excited to have made the shift and we look forward to taking you along for the ride.

In this month’s issue, we draw attention to one of the most depressing places for animals we’ve ever witnessed – Grandview Mall. Former editor-in-chief Matthew Bossons provides us with a timeline of the Guangzhou Aquarium’s disturbing history, including a recent event that led to a renewed outcry among Chinese netizens. Read about the awful aquarium on pages 40-49.

Get a quick explainer to South China’s famed liangcha (page 22-23), as Arts & Lifestyle editor Phoebe Kut gives you a taste of the bitter summer drink with Chinese characteristics. In the Business & Tech section, Kungfu Data CEO Josh Gardner talks livestreaming and KOLs (and reveals how it’s not really last year’s news) on page 33. 

Elsewhere in the magazine, the one and only Dr. Alfred Chambers reminds us that pain can be overcome with the right mindset (pages 56-57) in our Family section. We also take a look at two of the world’s leading doctors during this pandemic – Dr. Zhong Nanshan and Dr. Fauci – on pages 54-55.

Thanks for tuning in this month, and we wish you all an awesome August.
