Why teach in China? 

China has more international and bilingual schools than any other country in the world. Their need for qualified, academic teachers has never been greater. With salaries that surpass the Middle East - £25,000 - 60,000 with housing, flights and medical insurance on top, and a cost of living that is 50% less than London and Dubai, many teachers are making China their first choice location.

More about China

Excellent locations

Beijing is the capital city of China that has a history stretching back several millennia.  Modern meets ancient in Beijing, which is home to foreign embassies and host to the Olympics as well as cultural sites such as the Forbidden City, Hutong, the Summer Palace and the nearby Great Wall of China. Expatriates can enjoy an active social life with many expatriate sports and social clubs, bars, restaurants, gyms and parks.   Top sites in Beijing here with a very perky Naomi: 

Shanghai is on China’s central coast and the financial hub of China. A very multicultural and vast city, it started as the major trading port for eastern China and has turned into a modern city complete with the tallest building in China and an efficient, clean metro system.  Shanghai is a beautiful and welcoming city that’s easy to live in. A great overview of the city is here:

Qingdao is often called the Venice of China. On the coast with a temperate climate, Qingdao is regarded as one of the cleanest and most beautiful Chinese cities. In 2012 it was named “China’s most liveable city”.  Home to a famous brewery, Qingdao hosts an annual international beer festival in August that is a must-do for beer lovers. It has beautiful beaches including Loshan Beach which is surrounded by mountains, as well as parks, museums, sailing centres, restaurants and bars of all types.  Here’s a great video that will give you a closer look at this fabulous city:

Chongqing is probably the largest city you have never heard of. It is located up-river from Shanghai on the Yangtze River and whilst no longer technically part of the Sichuan province, it retains a love of spicy food. Chongqing is set to become the most important city in West China with plans for huge growth. Nearby Three Gorges is a beautiful boat ride away where you can travel down sharp bends alongside huge limestone cliffs.  Here’s an informative BBC show about this new mega-city:

Hong Kong is an autonomous region of China, with its own currency, economic, educational and legal systems.  Packed with over 7 million people on only 1104km2, it is one of the world’s most densely populated areas.  Hong Kong was up until recently under British rule and the convergence of East and West is seen everywhere.  Whether you visit a British style pub, shop at a night market, or take a ferry ride between islands, you will experience a culture that is at once both familiar and unfamiliar. Hong Kong is not cheap – cost of housing and living are typically higher than in mainland China, but it is massively appealing with something for everyone. See more here:
