Thinking of going to china to do esl work in central china & taking family any ideas or thoughts on the trip plan on leaving in feb
As a small ESL school owner and teacher in tianjin, China for four years here is my advice... Don't just look at your budget when selecting a city, think about what kind of income you can generate there also. Chengdu doesn't pay the most but it's close to places like jiu zhai gou and emei mountain and it's very beautiful in the summer. Beijing will be crowded and you will have more competition but the luxuries of home are at your doorstep. Tianjin where I run my school is cheaper than Beijing and offers a quiet setting but some complain about it being boring and dirty. Sanya on Hainan Island is similar to Hawaii in Climate but you wont be making as much as people up north and it's not the best place to study standard Mandarin. Go to levelupenglish.org and look at the about page there, click on the guide link to China near the bottom. over 7 years ago
Plenty to see in Tianjin. Culture Street, Italian Town near the train station. Nankai Uni is old and has a beautiful campus. The water park is a nice place to take a walk and not too far from the iconic TV tower. My favorite areas are the American and British concession areas along ma chang dao or five horse road where you can see Chinese tourists taking carriage rides down the streets, only recommended when it's not winter though. over 7 years ago

Is it sorte going to the Beijing World Amusement Park? I've read that it's falling apart and old? Thanks!
I went to the park in Happy Valley, if you go there expect to see new and old rides. Maintenance was being done on the large red roller coaster when I was there so I couldn't ride it but I did try all of the other rides. They seemed no more rickety and old than other roller coasters I've been on at my local amusement park in Portland, Oregon. And some of them look brand new. Acid rain tends to wear them out quick though. However I'd say these rides are no riskier than your average amusement park. over 7 years ago
