Hi Guys,

On a blog, I am writing the difference between living in a place, and working in a place.

Because most foreigners who come to China work as teachers, the delineation will be "Living in _______" vs. "Teaching in ________"

For the "Teaching in _________" it will include ESL teaching, because so many of us do that.

My real question is "what cities to write about?"


1.  Already, I picked the big cities to give a living guide:

Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Qingdao.

2.  What other cities deserve a living guide to people who know little about China?

I think: Suzhou, Hangzhou, Zhejiang (especially Ningbo), Guangzhou, Chongqing, Tianjin, Dalian

3.  Under this line of thought, there might be dozens of cities: all five tiers of city each have a different life, and rural living is different entirely.

Thanks for the feedback

living guides:
Wuhan, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Dalian, Harbin and maybe one for the whole of yunnan.

Beijing & Shanghai change too fast, maybe best just link to existing expat news outlets
