Living in Fuzhou

Fuzhou, the ‘Banyan City’, is a large Chinese city of some four million people just inland from the coast and directly opposite the island nation of Taiwan. It is a busy city with a past stretching back over two thousand years and a modern, industrial economy. Expatriates living in Fuzhou will have a wealth of history and ancient Chinese culture to explore, with famous temples to visit including the Yongquan, Xichan, Linyang, Fahai and Yunju temples, as well as the extraordinary Earth Tower of Hakka. The Sanfang Qixiang district is also hugely worth exploring – translated as ‘Three Lanes and Seven Alleys’, this ancient neighborhood gives expats living in Fuzhou an increasingly rare glimpse of how ancient China’s cities must have looked like. The West Lake Park, built around a two thousand year old man-made recreational lake, gives expatriates in Fuzhou a truly unique area of urban parkland to stretch their legs in. And last but not least, the Luoxing Tower is a local landmark built in the Song dynasty some thousand years ago and also always worthy of a visit.
