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

Living in Yantai

China is a fascinating place to live, with widely varied industries and trade, and a very successful economy that produces goods that ship globally. Yantai is a city in the Shandong province and famed for two things: the city is one of China's largest fishing ports and famous for the local Changyu winery, the oldest and largest grape winery in China. Both of these very different industries are celebrated and expats living in Yantai will probably enjoy a visit to the Changyu wine culture museum. China is famed for the care and ritual around dining and drinking, and life in Yantai will give expatriates an insight into some of the fascinating culture and beauty of the province. If you're planning to live in Yantai, then you might also benefit from an InterNations membership.
