This popular city consistently ranks in the top ten tourist cities in all of China. It is located halfway between the major cities of Shanghai and Nanjing, providing easy access to both cities.

Wuxi – China

Many of our Wuxi based teachers tell us about the relaxed quality of life and closeknit expat community. They also talk about the low cost of living enabling teachers to save a significant percentage of their salary each month. That is of course, as long as you don’t go spending a chunk of it on some big nights out in Shanghai!
Many of our teachers talk about their favourite ‘must sees’ in Wuxi including the Lingshan Buddha along with many other cultural sites including beautiful temples, Venice style ‘canals’, historical places of interest and scenic areas, as well as several new theme parks and other entertainment areas.
