Once capital to some of the earliest kingdoms, Shaoxing has a great number of museums, temples and ancient sites. It is also the home of Lu Xun, one of China’s most venerated writers. Because of this, it is popular with tourists and the center is kept clean, green and pedestrian friendly.
The city remains relatively small so all of our teachers live within a twenty minute walk (or five minute bike) of the school. Shaoxing is also on the high speed rail line which means you are 30 minutes from Hangzhou and 90 minutes from Shanghai. This allows you easy access to two international cities while avoiding the associated living costs.
