    Informative but.

    For sake of the planet. Please make one showing the use of single use disposable plastic.
    Plastic water bottles
    Plastic coffee cups
    Plastic straws

    Long term impact on worldwide use of plastic for everything. Plus environmental cost of online ordering.

    Most expensive cities in the world might be Tokyo, New York, London, Singapore, one of the Switzerland cities.
    Shanghai is not as expensive as those I mentioned. But within China, Shanghai is more expensive. It is a first tier city. For westerners to holiday in China is dirt cheap due to the foreign exchange (FX) rate. U.S dollars or EURO convert to Yuan, is very affordable for westerners. You must be a student to find life there very expensive? I always tell people, go to China for holiday and feast like a king. If you are American, your dollar will stretch a lot. The Americans holidaying in China book the club suites and whatnot, because of the FX rate. I tell Americans, if they’ve not been to China yet, better go now, before the U.S dollar devalues more in future. 🙂
