Like most countries in the world, China is rich in culture and history. Who wants to settle here, inevitably encounters challenges, be it in language or culture. However, this inevitably leads to a new perspective and enriches one’s own perception. Preparing you for this time is our goal and we therefore support you tailor-made in your adventure!
Density stress vs. normality
If you think of China, then you inevitably think about the many people in this country. So it is natural that it gets a bit crowded on the streets and in the metro. What is known as dense stress in the Western world suddenly experiences a new meaning here. However, this is part of Chinese everyday life like many other things that may seem a bit monstrous to you right now. But with the right preparation, you are well prepared for your life in China.
Of course, one of the first goals is to find accommodation. This will be almost impossible from here. It is recommended to stay in a service apartment or hotel for the first few weeks, then look specifically for an agent to find an apartment in your desired quarter, which you identified during your first outings. For this purpose, it is advisable to already deal with our help on issues such as lease, bail or furniture.
The cost of living in China varies a lot. If you are looking for western standard and imported products, everyday life will inevitably be expensive. But it is also possible to live in a more favourable environment. This includes trying out new kitchens and even moving outside of the well-known Western restaurant chains. Especially the Chinese cuisine is so varied that you can eat in simple restaurants and food stalls at very reasonable prices.
Of course, this includes the understanding of the Chinese language. Although about 70% of the population speak Mandarin, there are also other languages and dialects such as Yue, Wu, Minbei, Minnan or other minority languages. The choice of whereabouts inevitably determines the question of language. Here you are in good hands with us. We will find the best way for you to learn the language and to find your way in everyday life. When looking for a place, the climate is also important. China is a big country with different climate zones. From harsh winters in the north to subtropical conditions, everything is possible depending on the region.
