Jiading is a suburb of Shanghai Municipality, it is located in-between position of Shanghai downtown and old Suzhou city. Living in Jiading, you can shuttle from modern and tradition China easily!

Two years before, we host more than 60 batch guests from airbnb, those are so good memories ! Then we had to stop accept guests because I must move to other city for our family business. But we come back to Shanghai now, also back to airbnb lovely guests, So why hesitate? You are so welcome!

Jiading is a beautiful place and is not as crowded as central Shanghai. Air feels fresher and cleaner with lesser cars on the roads. We felt it was a good getaway from the overly busy central Shanghai. Mark was very accommodating and shared with us nuggets of info and history…

Mark was a great host! He helped me find the apartment, showed me around town, and gave me great advice about what to do and see in the town. I am only sorry that I didn't get to spend much time talking to him and his family, but I really enjoyed my stay with them.

A week's stay at Mark's was the best guest experience I've had. He's given his time and effort to show me great things in China and helped with any small difficulties of being foreign and not speaking the language. It was a pleasure to meet his family. The place is beautiful, pea…
