What is Shanghai like to expatriates? The newly released video series “Shanghai through Our Eyes” that presents the city through the eyes of expatriates, who live in Shanghai, would probably help with the answer.
Explorer Marco Polo Inspired Expat’s Fascination with China
The video is about Franka Gulin, who is the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board Shanghai Representative office. Gulin has lived in China for nine years.
Gulin said the historical connection between Croatia and China could be traced to the great explorer Marco Polo who brought news about China back to Europe.
Gulin loves exploring the old parts of the city and enjoys talking with local people. “The old houses and the people there generate a family feeling for me”, said Gulin.
