Traveling to Shanghai but don’t speak Mandarin? Let Zhao do the talking for you.
Our city guide takes you to the best sights, restaurants, shops, bars, and clubs in Shanghai by playing the Chinese phrases you need to get around and experience the city like a local.


Zhao Shanghai is packed with useful Chinese phrases which you can play aloud—just like having your own interpreter.
GET AROUND. Tap any address to have it read aloud in Chinese. Tap the taxi card to show and address in large print to a cab driver. Play other phrases aloud to buy train tickets, get directions, or take the metro.
EAT OUT. Reviews of restaurants with no English menu include a list of our favorite dishes—just tap on the name to play it to the wait staff in Chinese. Other phrases help you order drinks, communicate diet restrictions, and customize your order.
SORT YOURSELF OUT. The phrasebook section helps you communicate in shops, at the doctor, in emergencies, or when meeting people.


ONLY THE BEST. Our guides are written by local experts who only review the sights, restaurants, shops, bars, and clubs they love. Every place Zhao includes is worth visiting, and you don’t need to filter hundreds of listings to find something good.
TOTALLY OFFLINE. All maps are built-in, so you don’t need an active internet connection or a pricey data roaming package to use Zhao’s maps to get around.
ALL BUTTONED UP. Build your own trip using the flagging feature, or explore Shanghai by mood, time, cost, or neighborhood on one of Zhao’s 18 fully mapped itineraries.
EASY TO USE. Slick design, color-coded sections, GPS mapping, and intuitive navigation bars help you access the information you need quickly.
Available for iPhone and iPod Touch.
