I had the good fortune and good luck of living in the Rice Paper apartment at Chai from September - December 2013 while in Shanghai on a research assignment. The apartment was furnished impeccably, and smartly designed to maximize closet and storage space. The unit came with high quality bath products, coffees and teas, and kitchen appliances. Tucho's entire Chai staff are exceptional - friendly, helpful, warm, and all around perfect hosts. The Chai Living building is situated in a convenient location, with pharmacy, shopping, supermarket, and restaurants all within a few minutes walking. The view of the Pudong skyline at night from the apartment was remarkable. All in all, mine was a truly memorable, authentic, and once in a lifetime experience. I recommend Chai Living completely, and hope to be able to spend time there again soon.
