Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen - Teach in China's super cities

Long ago China had only three famous first tier cities, they were the most developed and possessed real economic power. China’s most powerful cities have always been Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, but recently Shenzhen has joined their ranks as well. In China there are number of cities, such as Tianjin, Chongqing, or Suzhou which are semi first tier; these cities have a high GDP, yet their fame is not that great




Beijing is the capital of an emerging world superpower, a thriving global city with ancient roots which span back millennia (along with lasting historical architecture to prove it). Beijing is unlike any other city in the world. There is always something unique to discover whether exploring the forgotten corners of the Forbidden Palace or trying the newest bar in Houhai neighbourhood.

Making the decision to teach abroad in Beijing can be one of the largest and most important steps you can take in your life. It will introduce you to an incredibly  important modern city, a rich culture of both traditional values and new aspirations, a country that boasts one of the longest continuous histories and brightest futures in the world. Think you’re up to the challenge?

There are plenty of easy ways for people to make Beijing their home. Apartments are modern and clean. Western-style grocery stores are found in every neighbourhood, which complements the local markets nicely.

Shanghai, on China’s central coast, is the country's biggest city and a global financial hub. Its heart is the Bund, a famed waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings.

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture.

Shanghai’s growth rate and rapid industrialization has resulted in an outpouring of employment opportunities. In an effort to meet the rising demand of English proficiency, English training schools have sprung up throughout China. In turn, the need for foreign English language educators has multiplied in recent years.

Shenzhen & Guangzhou


Shenzhen, in southeastern China, is a modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China’s mainland. It's known for its shopping destinations. Shenzhen is now China's wealthiest city, with it easy to obtain pretty much anything you need from Western food to king size sheets. There is no shortage of things to do, including networking opportunities, sports clubs, and general meetups based on various interests. 

Rest assured, Shenzhen has some of the best air in the country and its location next to the ocean ensures that there is ample breeze with which to blow the dirty stuff out of the city.


Guangzhou, one of China’s most exciting cities thanks to its melting pot of Chinese cultures, delicious food and groovy vibe. Guangzhou is a city of intrigue—there are many layers to discover. From the underground arts scene to some of the country’s biggest city parks, there is no shortage of places to explore.

Guangzhou has one the lowest costs of living in any of China’s major cities. Apartments here are brand-new but cheap; dining out costs a fraction of what it could cost back home; and transportation is inexpensive.
