The April issue of That’s PRD is out now, in both paper-and-ink form citywide and digital PDF form on our website. Here, Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons introduces the magazine:
Dearest readers, welcome to our April issue of That’s PRD! Before I kick things into gear and introduce the magazine, I want to take a moment to talk about our first-ever digital Canton Fair Guide, aimed at helping those of you located in the Greater Bay Area – as well as visitors to our fair region – navigate the chaotic world of Guangzhou’s biggest trade fair. To access our informative and helpful guide, scan the QR code below.
For this month’s cover story, That’s Shanghai’s Dominic Ngai explores the fascinating world of blockchain and profiles the growth of the developing technology in China (page 34). Additionally, Sarah Forman introduces you to emerging uses for blockchain in arts, society and travel (it turns out there is more to the tech than bitcoin).
In our City section, we take a look at China’s ozone pollution problem and showcase some amazing images of old China. Elsewhere in this issue, we profile some stylish wears for spring and examine a stunning piece of architecture in Chongqing. And, as always, the rear of the magazine boasts all the F&B details you need to stay full this month!
I’ll wrap this up with a special shout-out to our Guangzhou-based intern Naomi Lounsbury, who wrote a comical – yet informative – story on bug-based snacks, which you can find on page 46.
Until next month,
