Expat’s – Why China, the attraction, business?



Expat’s – Why China, the attraction, business? what is the real compulsion?

As a Newbie to China some 10 years ago I was afraid, awed, compromised, cautious toward this move and living in china, I made the leap of faith and it worked, with persistence, self-assertiveness, and a good lady to pass the time. then elements and timing were never better to commit to my dreams, some would say a dream is a dream and not necessarily going to bring a result you intend. My answer to that is quite rightly so, but whoever said life is a guarantee in anything we do, what choices we make? surely what is key here is that we come to conclusion and decisions that will change our life paths or not, and I for one want to at least once in my life to take that road.

family life and care china and Hong Kong

This is a life that is an ‘Acquired”  taste, opportunity and inspirations. so, say anyone with a willing attitude, adaptive and open to fresh and illuminating changes can make something happen in china


Hong Kong is also a place that has more than people appreciate or know about with small islands and beeches only a boat trip away, surfing, wind sailing, cable cars, ferries and a Ferris wheel similar to the London eye

but you need to cut ties from your norms, comfort zone and your safety net, your immediate families and friends, those are some of the sacrifices to bear! the plus side is that you make new friends.


Develop new skills, make new love, and test your character, learn a language or some of it. but you become independent and assertive and ”CAN DO” person


I would endorse a trip to china if you can it is truly a feast of beautiful and culturally informative life

To me living there for a lifetime would be one of the risks, being as you get older the risks exponentially rise, and unless you can ”speak- a- the lingo” sufficiently at that stage, it can be a difficult situation when feeble or frail.




Stay and take your chances or go propagate, enjoy the experiences and return to family and ”Home country”

Expat’s – Why China, the attraction, is it business? Love, Freedom? what is the real compulsion? what would you prefer!

  • Ready too take the Plunge the Leap of Faith to find what you are capable of?
  • or a short holiday to assess and decide later



Many foreigners travel to see countries they may have heard or seen on TV or from acquaintances or friends, this kicks off the interests initially, then considerations come into play, work situation or broken family issues the list goes on, but whatever the reasons, those that did in the majority have not looked back on that important choice. sacrifices were made and they will live with hen consequences of that action, so what good comes from this is that choices were made and acted upon. What else can anyone say to depreciate that?  are you not also considering such a move or considering living abroad for a given time just to get out of the trap you are in right now?



  1. Why and what keeps you from making that choice?
  2. Would you consider yourself as an independent thinking person?
  3. As a traveller have you had enough of Europe and America?
  4. Is travel to Asia’s beauty and scenery not worth some investment or mindset changes?
  5. I hope this post has been of particular cultural interest and you can be energised to go see China it is certainly worth Effort and respectable costs.


It would also be great to hear from you and any other ideas or questions you wish me to assist with on my social media apps
