Here Are The 10 Richest Districts In Shanghai

By Ben Cost

It's no secret that Shanghai is amassing heaps of RMB so Himalayan that Scrooge McDuck would need an oxygen mask to ski down one. But what are the richest districts?


Surely that neighborhood with its split-back pant sporting toddlers and snaggle-toothed beltfish drying on a clothing rack next to socks and underwear can't be among the wealthiest. You'd be surprised. Here are the top 10 richest districts in Shanghai, according to Mobile China Industry Information Network, which ranked the boroughs according to GDP.


1. Pudong

2. Minhang 

3. Huangpu 

4. Jiading 

5. Jingan 

6. Yangpu 

7. Xuhui 

8. Changning 

9. Baoshan 

10. Songjiang 


It's no surprise that Shanghai was recently tied with London at number 5 on the world's list of billionaire capitals, nor that rent in each of these boroughs is skyrocketing.
