F-visa Ghetto with no F-visas?
The F-visa Ghetto around Fahuazhen Road and Dingxi Road has all the slacker might want.
It's based around a nice garden/historical street Xinhua Road. J. G. Ballard grew up there, RIP. It is in the city centre and yet has loads of affordable and cheap housing nearby.
It has music bars and dives like Yuyintang, Logo, C's, Sus2 and err, the other one where Slappy Toy rehearse. It has Shanghai Super Music and Juju Rehearsal Studio. It has the Canart space and also Shanghai Sculpture Space and lawn (all free!). It has a cheap all-night Hong Kong food strip. Cool people like Brad Ferguson, Levi and Tim from Mortal Fools and ... errr ... me, live there.
But how can the average slacker foreigner work part time and use most of their day slumming it and doing art and music when the F-visa is continually under attack?
This just in from Shanghaiist.
I've already had to get a proper job again. And I'm not happy about it.
