What we're about

The OK,Deal! Travel Social Club has over 10 years of experience with organising trips. We are known for providing an overall great experience for Shanghai expats.

This club was established for international professionals to meet and to enjoy a weekend/holiday getaway together.

We create trips to give those working professionals in Shanghai a chance to escape hectic urban life and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery that China has to offer, outside of the city.

Our trips are for those seeking adventure, with the majority of our activities being hiking in some of China’s unknown but breathtakingly beautiful mountains.

Other activities also include, boating, sightseeing, rafting, beach camping, swimming in nature pools or staying overnight in a quiet countryside.

One of our aims when first establishing this club was also to provide expats with a fun way of meeting other international professionals in the city. That is why each of our trips are organised with the aim to provide a fun, social, expat-friendly getaway, with like-minded people who share the passion of travel and adventure.
