This is a community for expatriates in China to ask for advice, share the good times and the bad times while living and travelling in China, and get to know other expats here. From squat toilets to eating dog to travelling on a hard seat from Beijing to Hong Kong, this is the place to talk about what it's really like to live in the Middle Kingdom.

If you are new to China, tell us why you decided to come over here. If you are an old China hand, share an experience and tips for survival. Even if you are not an expat, but simply interested in China, you are welcome to contribute to this community.
