More Information on Changchun for Expats

Changchun is located up in Jilin province, near the far eastern border with Russia.  The city has a varied climate, with cold winters but also hot and humid summers too. Changchun is the biggest city in Jilin province with a population of around seven million and is still expanding year on year. Mandarin is spoken almost universally in Changchun, although the Northeastern dialect of Mandarin is also quite prevalent. Expats can find it tricky to learn Mandarin, but it is certainly not impossible, and you will begin to pick it up within a few months. Changchun’s economy has been growing for many years now, with the main industry being vehicle manufacturing. Around 50% of China’s passenger trains as well as Audi, Volkswagen, and Toyota cars are made in the city — giving it the nickname of “China’s Detroit”.
