Zhaoqing is a beautiful scenic city. By Chinese standards it is considered a small city, but has all the amenities of places like Guangzhou, which is a short 1.5 hour bus ride from just outside the Campus. Hong Kong is a comfortable 4 hour train ride away. High speed railway station 15 minutes bus ride from the campus, from where you can go to Guangzhou, Nanning, Guiling, Guiyang and various cities in Guizhou province.
Here you can now find almost anything you wish at any of the major super markets/department stores in the city, R-T Mart and Wal-mart located right in the center, 15 minutes bus ride from the campus. We have one right here on Campus. There is a wet market for fresh fruits, meats and vegetables all at competitive prices.
This city has over a dozen of KFCs, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and many restaurants with English menus and Western food. Transportation to and from the city is about 15 minutes by bus # 10, # 18, #26 and #30, which begin and end right on Campus.
The climate is terrific with long spells of blue sky and sunshine (30-60 days) with very little pollution. The campus is award winning as a “Garden Campus”. One look at the website will ascertain this.
Chinese classes the university can provide free of charge for foreign teachers. For most it's a huge advantage.
So, basically Zhaoqing is the best of both worlds. Lots to see and do without the crowded conditions of Hong Kong or Guangzhou. Entertainment, such as bars, clubs, and cinemas are plentiful. If, after looking at our comprehensive website you have any additional questions, please contact us and if you wish we will provide you with contact details of existing teachers who can assist you.
