The Shanghai Marriage Market: “People’s Park blind date corner” is a marriage market in which parents advertise their unmarried children since 2004.

The standards of finding the right match may be based upon age, height, job, income, education, family values, Chinese zodiac sign, and personality.

All of this information is written on a piece of paper, which is then hung upon long strings among other parents advertisements for their children. The parents walk around chatting with other parents to see if there is a harmonious fit.

This market is during the Weekend at Peoples Square Shanghai and it’s worth it to take a look.
