Vantage Shanghai - - 目录 -

Autumn has always been my favorite season in Shanghai. It’s the time to be outside! And if we are lucky, we are going to enjoy plenty of long sunny afternoons, blue skies and cool refreshing evenings.

It’s also a busy time for all kinds of international events that take place every autumn in Shanghai. This is considered to be the “prime time” for Shanghai on the international calendar. Personally, my favorite autumn events are the Shanghai Rolex Tennis Masters, and the JZ Music Festival, that both take place during the first two weeks of October. It’s a chance to watch up close some of the world’s best tennis players and musicians. This may not be exactly your thing. But no matter what your personal taste, I bet that you are sure to find something that is happening next month in Shanghai to get excited about!

We present this issue of Vantage to you in the hope that you will enjoy reading it outdoors. Perhaps after having enjoyed a long picnic lunch in the park with your friends or family (but before you begin your perfect afternoon snooze). Alternatively, you may decide to book a table for dinner at one of Shanghai’s beautiful al fresco restaurants. Take your time. Enjoy the food, enjoy the wine, enjoy the weather, and most of all enjoy reading one of our intelligent, thought-provoking articles. Autumn is so cool!

在上海的四季之中,我最爱的是秋天。若恰逢有幸在此时出游,则更是一番享受—那午后充足的阳光、湛蓝的天空与空气清新的傍晚,总是可以让你忘记夏日的呱噪。

此外,每逢秋日在上海轮番上演的诸多国际性活动,也使得这座城市在国际舞台上显得格外耀眼。

其中,最令我期盼的要数十月初的上海劳力士大师赛和上海爵士音乐节了—这两项活动是近距离观赏世界级网球选手和音乐人表演的绝佳机会。

不仅如此,即便这不是你感兴趣的内容,此时的上海还有更多精彩纷呈的活动供你选择,无论你偏爱哪一型,我敢打赌你都能找到自己的钟情之选。

最后,我们期读者们能在户外享受到阅读本期杂志的乐趣。那或许是在一次野餐的午后,抑或是在洒满温和阳光的公园里,与友人或家人,在午休小憩之前读上故事两三则,让心灵的速度放缓下来;又或是在上海顶级的餐厅中,与红酒美食为伴,在初秋微凉的空气中慢慢小品趣味十足的文章。

—这难道不是秋日一大快事么?
