Moving to Jinan, Thailand: About Jinan
Jinan is one of the biggest cities in China and has a population of nearly 7 million. Situated in Eastern China, it is the capital of the Shandong province – and is well known across the entire country for its natural springs (over 72 in total) which can all be found within the city. Jinan is also famous for its historical Buddhist sites, which are well worth a visit once you settle.
The city is 250 miles from Beijing and draws a number of tourists, including Chinese and foreigners alike who are attracted by the springs and ancient sites, and the fascinating markets. As an expat, you will find it has a growing nightlife, with a number of bars and live music venues. The nightlife, including the aptly named English Corner in the city centre, provides a popular venue for the growing expat population who have settled to either study, take up an English teaching post or to work in one of the companies.
Certainly, the city is a major economic hub. It has a prominent high-tech zone to the east – one of the most significant in the country – and on the eastern outskirts, a large export processing zone. However, along with the work opportunities, among the things that expats like the most are the friendliness of the locals, the low cost of living, numerous restaurants, tea houses, cafes, tourist attractions and shops – many of which can be found in the area around Spring Square.
One thing all the expats say, however, is that it is a good idea to try to learn the language if you can, as it makes it much easier to settle.
Moving to Jinan, Thailand: Living in Jinan
If you are living in Jinan, one of the things to get used to is how you pay your rent. It isn't monthly but can be quarterly, yearly or even half yearly. In addition to this, if anything in the apartment needs fixing, it might well be down to you to do this; so, if you can, try to check everything is in full working order before you move in. Most apartments are rented furnished and the rent is significantly lower than you would expect to pay back home and you can get good accommodation for just £145 to £200 a month.
Jinan has many great markets serving anything from food to technology, artwork, old coins and household goods. The culture market is a great place to head for souvenirs and you might get a good deal at the technology market on Shanda South Road. As with all markets, it is always worth haggling to lower the price. If you like eating out, there are quite a few good restaurants and it is worth noting, the city is famous for its soups.
For those who are interested in a spot of sight-seeing, there's plenty to see from the temples on the Thousand Buddha Hill, where you can also enjoy some great views of the city, to the Daming Lake Park, which often hosts festivals. Huayang Palace and Hero Mountain are other tourist draws and there are a few museums, including the Science and Technology Museum for adults and children fascinated by gadgets.
