Nanjing is a bustling, modern city. It has developed to elegantly blend old and new and is certainly among China’s most attractive urban areas.

Nanjing – China

Thanks to the influx of tourists, and the large number of foreigners who settle here to work as teachers, there is an unusual wealth of foreign restaurants and Western-style bars, and the city is China’s second best shopping location after Shanghai. Nanjing is a short ride by train from Shanghai, and has connections to Beijing, Hefei, and many other cities around China, making it easily accessible, and a popular day trip or weekend trip for expats and English teachers. Our teachers constantly report life is very comfortable in Nanjing and there is a lively expat scene with lots to do every evening.
