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

More Information on Chengdu for Expats

Chengdu is one of the biggest cities in western China and one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Its tropical climate might be a little tricky for some expats to get used to at first, but it is also the reason for Chengdu’s incredible natural beauty. Rivers valleys and forests surround the city and make for excellent trips when you want to escape the city for a while. Chengdu’s astronomical rise has attracted several multinational companies to relocate there, meaning the city has a healthy amount of job opportunities for expats. Mandarin is spoken by most people in Sichuan (as well as the local Sichuanese dialect). Although expats usually find learning Mandarin tricky, it is certainly not impossible, and you’ll be picking it up in no time. In general, Chengdu is an excellent destination for expats in China.
