City Guide - Ningbo

Ningbo is one of China's oldest cities, with a history dating to the Hemudu culture in 4800 BC. Ningbo was known as a trade city on the silk road at least two thousand years ago, and then as a major port, along with Yangzhou and Guangzhou in the Tang Dynasty; thereafter, the major ports for foreign trade in the Song Dynasty.

Ningbo's is a dialect of Wu Chinese, and has preserved many aspects of ancient Chinese phonology. Its original wording mode can be found in classical reference books. Ningbo also has a famous area for nightlife known as Laowaitan which is very popular with foreigners and contains more than thirty clubs and bars. Shanghai is also only two hours away by fast train making it very easy to visit China’s most famous city.

You can immerse yourself in Chinese culture in this friendly, vibrant city. Learn to speak Mandarin Chinese, play Chinese chess, or train in Kung Fu or Tai Chi. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved in outdoor activities such as hiking, bike rides and various sports as well as the facilities you would expect from a good sized city including shops, restaurants, parks and nightclubs.

City Guide - Yuyao & Cixi

Yuyao & Cixi - This area of China is ancient and historical with more than 7000 years of heritage – however, it’s also growing as rapidly and excitingly as some of the bigger cities on China’s developed East Coast. They are clean, green and easy to get around, and Yuyao got inaugurated as a ‘UN Global Green City’ in 2008.

Yuyao is ideal for people who want to experience Chinese cultures, both ancient and modern, developed and emerging. As a main centre of international trade in the province of Zhejiang, Yuyao is close to some of the biggest and brightest East Coast cities - Hangzhou, Ningbo and Shanghai are all easily (and cheaply) accessible by high-speed rail and bus.

Yuyao is surrounded by mountains, rural farming communities and rivers – there are plenty of places to explore for those with an adventurous side.

Vacancies also available in other cities across China, such as Shaoxing, Jiaxing, Yiwu, Jinhua, Harbin, Dongguan and more.
