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

Living in Huizhou

The Chinese city of Huizhou, or "Waichow" as it was historically known, sits on the Pearl River Delta, not far from China's southern coast. The city's visitors and residents alike are often drawn to the beautiful Golden Bay – "Xun Liao Wan" – as well as the West Lake, with Pagodas, traditional Chinese landscaping and a famously peaceful atmosphere. The nearby Luofu Mountain is also a popular destination for locals and expats living in Huizhou alike. The city has some wonderful traditional Chinese architecture to explore, notably the Ye Ting Memorial Hall, the ancient Suzhou Tower and the old Huqingyutang Medicine Hall. The real charm in store for you as an expatriate living in Huizhou, though, is the dreamlike misty quality of the city's immediate environs, particularly the West Lake, which emanate a sense of the 'traditional China' that in so many other cities has been crowded out by the rapid pace of the country's development.

Moving to Huizhou

Despite having a population of over four and a half million people, the city does not have its own airport and expats moving to Huizhou will generally arrive via the Shenzhen Baoan International Airport. This is connected to the city by a regular bus service, which takes approximately two hours, as well as by taxi and in the future also via a mass rapid transit system that is currently still under construction. Expatriates moving to Huizhou can find plenty of general information and advice in our Expat Magazine, a collection of articles on expatriation topics on the InterNations website. We cover topics ranging from expat to cross-cultural communication and working abroad. This is a great starting point to help you settle into your host city on the front foot, and should you find yourself in need of more detailed, city- or country-specific advice, you can always use our platform to get in touch with other expatriates living in Huizhou or other parts of China.

Working in Huizhou

As an expatriate working in Huizhou, you will find the city's urban environment thriving and the business environment bullish. The city has benefited from a real estate boom, as well as a growing information technology sector, but the strength of Huizhou's economy is a series of Development Zones around the city. Expatriates in Huizhou can enjoy the city's busy after hours scene, with a great local food culture and innumerable local places to eat, drink and relax – as well, of course, as the out of city getaways mentioned earlier. In such a large city, it shouldn't be difficult to find other expats working in Huizhou. The easiest way to do this is through the private messages and discussion groups on the InterNations website. These are a great way for expats to get in touch with other global minds, organize meet-ups and network with the local international communities in their host cities.

    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.
