    Looking for an appartment on InterNations, I met the expat community in Canton. Now I am sharing a house with another member.

InterNations is a platform especially created to support expats as they overcome the tricky dilemmas of relocation.

Activity and Energy in Guangzhou

As South China's largest seaport and host to the China Import and Export Fair twice a year, Guangzhou is an important economic center of the Guangdong Province. Key industries include manufacturing, automotive, petrochemicals, and electronics. There are also job opportunities in textiles, mining, engineering, hospitality, shipbuilding, and IT. With so much international investment, foreign companies will often choose expats for senior positions which, in turn, has created a high demand for English-language teachers. Even so, it is a great advantage to be able to speak Mandarin in Guangzhou's competitive corporate world. When the working day is over, expats will find plenty of beautiful places to relax amid the Ming dynasty relics of the peaceful Yuexiu Park, on a boat cruise of the Pearl River and among the wide variety of flora at the South China Botanical Garden. Rollercoasters thrill visitors at Chime-Long Paradise, traditional stories as colorful as the costumes are performed at the Guangzhou Opera House, a huge number of museums, landmarks, and temples demonstrate China's traditions and shoppers will find plenty of bustling market places to explore.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Beijing or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

At Our Events in Guangzhou You'll Make Friends with Other Expats in No Time!

If you don't speak the language, you may be nervous about making new friends in Guangzhou, but InterNations solves this problem with our regular events for the entire community where expats can socialize and network in person. Moreover, explore our groups to find like-minded friends to share your interests with and build a fulfilling new life in Guangzhou; salsa dancing, bowling, choral singing, photography, and movies are just a small selection of our friendly InterNations Groups. If a group hasn't been started yet for your favorite hobby or interest, you can always start your own! With InterNations, your expat life just got a lot easier.
