Working in First-tier cities

China’s first-tier cities include Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other famous cities. These cities usually have a population of more than 10 million people, convenient municipal facilities and transportation, a lot of modern buildings and many recreational activities. But this also means crowded public transport, higher housing costs and dietary costs.

China’s second and third tier cities are not towns in the traditional sense of European and American countries. These cities usually have a few million people and very modern municipal facilities. Working in this type of city, employers usually offer free accommodation or a large rent subsidies to you, and the cost of living is much lower than in first-tier cities.
