Moving to China
China is famed for being the industry capital of the world, but this fast-growing, East-Asian powerhouse is so much more than just cement chimneys and McDonalds toys. As one of the oldest civilizations in the world, it will come as no surprise that this great country has contributed in numerous areas of life: Philosophy, martial arts, religion, architecture and much more. The country is filled with contrasts; tradition battling modernization, the timeless old living next to the ever increasingly new and a multi-ethnic population nearing 1.5 billion. Covering about 9.6 million square kilometers, there is certainly a lot of ground to cover, but with landmarks like the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army and the Forbidden City, it is without doubt a place that must be seen to be believed.

Unlike western countries, moving to China is even more of a cultural shift, making it slightly more difficult to adapt. The idea of a move may only be a fleeting thought, but if you are even considering the idea then strap in, fasten your seatbelt and get ready as we outline everything you need to know about joining one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

    Not where you might have thought
    The most popular sport in the world, soccer is often thought to have originated in England in the mid-19th Century, however the Chinese claim to have thought up an earlier version of the game as early as the Han Dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE) having called it ‘Tsu-Chu’ or ‘kicking the ball’.
