    At the first Shanghai Get-Together I met several American expats. I am very grateful that they shared their experience with me.

Living in Changzhou

Expatriates living in Changzhou will discover a city that has had several of names over the years and, since being founded around 3,000 years ago, has grown to become one of China's wealthiest. Forbes recently rated it as the 9th best business city in mainland China, and with good reason. The city boasts a number of universities – among them the Oxford International College of Changzhou – and a series of planned industrial zones including a high-tech district and a designated Export Processing Zone. It's not all about work in Changzhou, though, and expats living in Changzhou have plenty of culture to explore as well. Top sights to see in the city nicknamed 'Dragon City' are the Tianning Temple, a stunning landmark Buddhist temple that defines the city's skyline, and the Dong Po Park, a great place for locals and global minds alike to unwind.

Moving to Changzhou

The city of Changzhou has good transport infrastructure links, with the Changzhou Benniu Airport less than ten miles from the city center and a new central railway station only completed in 2011. The local road network has seen a huge amount of expansion and modernization as well, so moving to Changzhou shouldn't prove much of a logistical challenge. The city is a popular tourist destination, with a number of parks and an impressive cultural heritage, so settling in will be easier and more engaging than in more purely industrial cities. Expatriates moving to Changzhou can also find plenty of articles and tips in the Expat Magazine, covering travel subjects such as expat insurance, finance and cross-cultural communication. There is also a good selection of content on the InterNations website written by other expatriates, who have plenty of great advice and some engaging reflections for expats moving to Changzhou and other major international cities.

Working in Changzhou

Changzhou has a busy, dynamic economy. The education sector, tourism sector and commercial hub status of the city all mean that local businesses and individuals will be used to dealing with international arrivals and expats should find settling in enjoyable and motivating. Expats working in Changzhou have similarly good fortunes – not only does the city have a good supply of global minds and an international outlook, but the climate is also comfortable and the cuisine rich. You can get in touch with other expatriates working in Changzhou on the InterNations discussion groups, forums or through private communications – it's the easiest way to find other international residents. In fact, InterNations members often arrange meet-ups in this way. And as this is a city with a growing international community, networking, socializing with other expats and getting information on the best places to go and things to do in China’s Dragon City won't pose much of a challenge.

    It is just so easy to find other international people and global minds with InterNations. I didn´t know there were so many in Shanghai.
