Living in Nantong

Nantong is a city in the Jiangsu Province in China and is known as "The Pearl of the River and the Sea" because of its location at the mouth of the Yangtze River. For this reason, it is also an important shipping location for the area. Expats living in Nantong will be able to experience the city’s beautiful scenery, as well as visit locations such as Langshan, known as ‘Wolf Hill’, which is home to a Buddhist temple which is a dedication to a monk from the Song dynasty.

Moving to Nantong

Nantong is described as a very affordable place to live in, especially in comparison with other major Chinese cities. The city has a wide range of housing options, so expatriates moving to Nantong should not have any problems finding accommodation. The climate of Nantong is hot and humid in the summer months, with very low temperatures in the winter due to the Siberian high winds that can affect the area. Nantong is relatively close to Shanghai and can be accessed easily via rail or road. Getting around the city itself is easy due to its size and an expatriate moving to Nantong will find that there are plenty of buses and taxis, whilst cycling is another preferred method of travel. The city is home to a number of recommended schools as well as a successful university, Nantong University, and expats moving to Nantong with families may also benefit from the city’s international school. Relocating to Nantong can nevertheless be a daunting prospect, and by joining InterNations expatriates can connect with others in order to find out key information about moving to and settling in the city as well as answer vital questions about education, housing and more.
