About

I created this website to be the best all in one resource, and up-to-date resource to help you navigate the waters of living, working, teaching and traveling in China. I have been living in China for a decade, and through this time I wasted a ton of money, time, resources and faced frustration trying to figure out how things work. The purpose of this website is to save you the time, money and frustration to allow the best experience possible. Also to help avoid scams and bad situations that many foreigners find themselves. Experience the best China possible and know what to expect.

Some dream of China, some fall into it.  I fell, a decade ago while backpacking and teaching my way through Europe my brother insisted we go to China.  One crazy Siberian Railway trip later I was in Beijing.  One month turned to 10 months and 10 months turned into a decade.  Over this time I have learned to navigate the waters here learning Chinese, teaching, traveling and working for Chinese companies eventually sending me all over the world.  This blog is to help those that want the adventures of China, but want a head start when they arrive without going through the growing pains I did.

This site does have links to Amazon, it is appreciated if you are planning to buy something on Amazon to buy it through the link, as you know I am sure I get some tiny percentage, pays the web hosting and what not. If you are one of those people that think I deserve nothing and rather buy directly go for it, I don’t need your 13 cents anyway, and I don’t want to hear all your complaining, so if you are one of these people click on another link.

If you want more in depth info and plans on how to get a great teaching job, how to find a professional job or traveling check out my books. These are composed from over a decade of experience. They are useful and will save you a ton of time and money and have saved many the same in the past. Now if you don’t think it’s worth it, don’t buy it, I don’t really care, it will be a good story when you waste 6 months and a few grand and then run into someone that did buy it and they tell you about it and you think ‘stupid book’, thats worth more then the tiny book price. Again as you know I make some on this, need something for the 100s if not thousands of hours put in to getting this site up and content fresh.

Enjoy the site, and if you have any questions email me anytime, I respond pretty quickly.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your China adventure.
