    Canal town Wuxi boasts lovely lake scenery, ancient riverside streets and one of the world’s tallest statues of Buddha, at Mt. Lingyan scenic area. 

    Centrally located in Jiangsu province, Wuxi is only 45 minutes from Shanghai or Nanjing and very close to Suzhou. 

    The city has grown considerably over the last few years and is ever-more attractive for expats, with a growing variety of restaurants, bars and scenic areas such as Taihu Lake. There are many charming old-style streets in the city’s downtown area many of which feature bustling street food markets.

    A genuine China experience

    The city has grown considerably over the last few years and is ever-more attractive for expats, with a growing variety of restaurants, bars and scenic areas such as Taihu Lake. There are many charming old-style streets in the city’s downtown area many of which feature bustling street food markets. 

    Wuxi offers a genuine China experience in that there is still not a huge expat community, although it does attract both young and old, married couples or single teachers. Considered relatively small by Chinese standards – it boasts a population of 4.5 million – it is large enough to have a growing metro system, an airport and is well-connected by fast trains to other parts of China.

    Wuxi’s cost of living is lower in comparison to larger cities. Cheap rents and a laid-back atmosphere make Wuxi a great place to enjoy a high-quality of living and still be able to set money aside.

    Wuxi is famous as a vacation spot in China as it sits on the banks of China’s third largest lake, the beautiful Taihu Lake. The whole area has various waterways in addition to this lake, including the famous Grand Canal. It’s also easy to get out of the city and enjoy hiking trails across the area’s many gentle hills. 

    OUR PEOPLE IN WUXI

    Being in Wuxi has given me a great opportunity of teaching myself basic Chinese language, despite its complexity. This has really helped me move around the place and in doing my shopping.
