Often referred to as the ‘New York’ of Asia, Shanghai is the world’s largest city and has an ever growing population of around 24 Million residents.  As China is opening up to the world, Shanghai is among the chief beneficiaries and in 2016 it was named the most attractive city for expats (for the fourth time in six years) by International Talent Magazine.  Shanghai is home to over 170,000 expats as of 2015.

Shanghai Boasts fantastic downtown nightlife and Night Lights and as the world's fastest growing city, Shanghai is no stranger to world-class clubbing and pubbing.  On the other side of that, if you are relocating with your family, the first thing ex-pat parents will tell you is that Shanghai is an extremely safe environment.  Chinese people love children and will go to great lengths to entertain and spoil your youngsters at any given opportunity (which can be a little overwhelming and strange at first). With inexpensive domestic help, you will also find yourself, instead of being loaded down with chores, you are able to spend more quality time with your children, taking them swimming, or to the park, or to one of Shanghai's amazing museums. Eating out is also notably more enjoyable with children in Shanghai as children are welcome everywhere – even in high end restaurants and many also have child-friendly facilities.

Beijing is currently the official capital of the Republic of China and the most populous of all the cities.  Knows as the gateway too many exciting tourist attractions, including the great wall of China Beijing has embraced modernity however it has beautifully preserved not only its ancient buildings but also its long-standing culture and heritage.  Living in Beijing, therefore, is a comprehensive opportunity to experience China’s past, present, and even future.

In the city centre, there are more than 750 finance companies, generating over 125 billion RMB and the central business district, which covers several thousands of square miles, is filled with shopping centres, luxurious accommodation options, and high-end housing.

The cost of living in Beijing between 30% - 40% lower than in London, UK therefore your salary will go much further.  The Chinese government also offer tax incentives for foreign workers on key areas such housing, learning Mandarin, flights to your home country and children’s school fees.
