Why China?

There are a wealth of reasons to start a hospitality career in China. China itself is a fascinating place. These are our Top 4 Reasons to come to China:

  • Exploration – China is so large, and so diverse, you will never run out of places to see! Many fascinating destinations in Asia are also only a short flight away (Seoul, 1-hour 50min. – Hong Kong, 2 hrs – Japan, 3 hrs – Thailand, 4 hrs) 
  • Career Advantages – Experience in China will give you a boost in the international job market
  • Culture – Immersion in Chinese society will give you a new perspective that 10,000 books cannot give you
  • Affordability – Cost of living and daily expenses are relatively low in China, compared to many other countries
