Members assist Members in the China Expat Forums

Our trust-based community was developed to help expatriates in China swap suggestions and advice on all expat-relevant enquiries, e.g., ʺIs the smog in cities like Beijing or Shanghai a serious health risk?ʺ or ʺWhere can I take a crash course in Chinese writing?ʺ. In a community that’s all about expat living in China, from Peking duck & hot pot to Qingming Festival, the participants of the expat forum China can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses. On the InterNations Expat Forum for China, there will always be another expat member to make life abroad easier.

From smog issues to language skills: The Expat Forum China leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like housing and household in Beijing or travel and accommodation in Shanghai, you could also browse our China Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, intercultural anecdotes, dealing with homesickness and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from smog issues to language skills - just join the InterNations China expat forums.
