Events in Shanghai

The Shanghai Internship Program provides fun and exiting weekend activities in order for you to make the most out of your time living in China. Although you will be working during the day, these events aim to give you full advantage of what the city has to offer. Even though your internship is the most important, it’s essential that you take advantage of living abroad. The events below are just a few examples of previous activities.

City Tour

What better way to get to know your new city than a guided tour? You will have the chance to explore the different neighborhoods of Shanghai, the famous landmarks and attractions around the city!

Day Trips

With Absolute, you will have the chance to spend a day trip or a weekend in a nearby city such as Hangzhou, Suzhou, Nanjing or Zhujiajiao and explore China’s culture, local cuisine and rich history.

Cultural Visits

As part of the program you have the opportunity to explore Shanghai’s various architecture styles, museums and art scene. You will have the chance to do some serious sightseeing and visit the famous landmarks and temples around the city!

Unsponsored Events

We want to help you build friendships and get acquainted with your new city. To help you, our Absolute staff will be planning unsponsored events for the entire group every week. These events are voluntary, but we recommend that you attend these as they will make sure that you will get to know your new city and the other interns on the program.


Interested in expanding your professional network? Our Absolute staff will be helping you meet both local- and expatriates living, working in Shanghai through organized networking events. This is a great opportunity for you to speak, socialize and network with important business people from all around the world!
