That's the first city I've been to when I came here.  Its filthy because the major product of the city or maybe the whole province is coal.  Local people look at you from head to toe and follow you then gossip.  Its cold there and most foreigners were black and filipinos.  Most people dont speak English only students can speak English.

Don't go there... it's like living in Mordor from the Lord of the Rings. 

 

It is on my Top 3 worst cities in China, at the top of the list. 

 

Number two is: Zhengzhou, Henan

 

You will regret it... wait... this post is 8 weeks old... I bet you are already regretting it.

I was there on business 2 years past, couldn't  drag me out of the airport, it was minus 20c outside. After an hour  eventually made it to the taxi, arrived at the hotel and refused to leave there. 3 days later left. Polar bear world this time of year.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer not respecting the contract later on. -- icnif77
