Work Abroad in China

If you’re looking for a work and travel destination that is packed full of rich traditions, culture, and history, you've come to the right place. Visits to China are on the rise, as travellers search for their next big adventure.

A gap year in China is guaranteed to help you grow - China is one of the most popular destinations for travellers who enjoy a challenge. If you can conquer "the Red Dragon", you can conquer anything. It's the next level up - you'll experience a culture that is vastly different from your own, and find immense satisfaction in overcoming the difficulties that you may face. It's an incredible, life-changing experience.

Think you'd like to live and work in China? Chances are, your skills are in high demand. Whether you want to work in China teaching English, or work at a summer camp in China, there are plenty of opportunities for english speakers.

Working abroad in China is a great way to explore one of the world's most ancient countries. From the diverse culture, to the impressive and imposing ancient heritage sites, there's something to suit every type of traveller.

With China’s vast and diverse landscape, you can find almost any type of setting you desire. It's home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, it boasts the second largest mountain in the world, and it has the sixth-largest desert on the planet. Whether you're looking for a bustling city or an ancient village, a mountain to hike, a river to cruise, or a forest to explore, there is something to suit every type of traveller.

A cultural exchange experience in China is an experience like no other. You'll come back a different person, and one thing is for certain - you'll run out of time before China runs out of places to see and things for you to do.

Chinese Culture

Your first trip to China can be a bit of a culture shock, as most people will be speaking a completely different language. It's always helpful to learn a few phrases before you go, in either Mandarin or Cantonese (spoken mostly in Hong Kong).

The language barrier is often the number one hurdle to overcome when travelling to China, but you'll notice that many Chinese locals will make a conscious effort to make tourists feel welcome and safe. They will try to help you to get where you’re trying to go, even if just through hand gestures. Working through the cultural differences is incredibly valuable, and, with patience, it can even be fun.

Exploring China’s heritage is guaranteed to be a rewarding, stimulating, and moving experience. From imposing imperial palaces to adorable pandas, you'll be fascinated by the never-ending experiences.

Even in our hyper-connected world, China remains a land cloaked in mystery to many foreigners. It’s certainly not your average travel experience - with a history of over 3,000 years, it boasts the world’s richest breadth of culture.

Each province has its own distinct features, and beyond the major cities, you'll discover that China offers many charming pockets of beauty. From simple Chinese gardens, to the stunning Great Wall, China's awe-inspiring landscape paints a stunning backdrop from which the entire culture can draw inspiration.

While many uninformed people simply view China as a land of dumplings, temples, and dragons, there's so much more depth to this fascinating country. There's something for you, whether your interest lies in history, art, music, food, nature, or something else entirely.
