Welcome to the very last print edition of Urban Family Shanghai.
That's right, we did a big survey asking you, our readers, what you wanted, and you came back with a resounding response. You want upto-the-minute news and the very latest on what is going in this fast paced city. And you want it at your fingertips. In a word, you want digital.
So we have heeded your call. That's right, we'll still be going strong, but we will be concentrating our efforts where you want them – on www.urban-family.com and our WeChat account (ID: urbanfamilyshanghai, or scan the QR code at the end of this letter) – with even better content, delivered daily.
To bid you farewell in print, our cover story concentrates on the things we love about our city as the weather warms up, with a roundup of our favorite parks, pools, play zones and museums (from p16). Once again, we are just dipping our toe in the waters there – you'll find expanded versions of those lists, along with a lot more things we love, on our WeChat and web.
In keeping with our outdoor theme, we offer up 15 pet-friendly venues in the Food & Fun section (p24), as well as introduce our new wellness columnist Lorraine Li (p28). In Entertainment, Cats the musical returns to Shanghai this spring (p34) , and you can find out about a load more great shows coming up in our Events section (p50).
The rest of the magazine is packed with all your Urban Family favorites, in print for the last time. We hope you enjoy it. Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to outgoing Urban Family editor-in-chief Natalie Foxwell for doing an amazing job on the magazine.
See you all online!
