New Expat

Hey everyone! My names Chloe.. I'm considering moving to China but I just need a bit more information, if anyone has previously lived in the UK and are now living in China please message I'd love to know a bit more about your experience :)

Hi Chloe, I am originally from London and have been living and working in China since 1998.

How can I help?

Hi Chloe

Just seen your post: it depends on which part you want to live in, what salary you're looking for if applicable, what you want to do and perhaps most importantly why you want to come! DON'T come just to hang out with expats! The Chinese are the most welcoming people in the world and you would be missing out!

If you've never been I suggest a short internship or English teaching working holiday to find out for yourself if you really want to come! You'll love it if you're:
Open to change, flexible, patient and a calm person. Patience is the ultimate virtue!

You'll hate it if you're:
Only looking to join an expat community, a creature of habit, xenophobic or intolerant!

Good luck!
