Crimo, now you do know why I decided to settle in Guangxi Province.  Nanning is still a small city by Beijing/Shanghai/Guangzhou standards, but it is also very dynamic and its people very nice.

THANKS !

I agree with the above. I have never resided in Nanning but I have visited it often.  I think that it has evolved considerably over the years, mostly for the better.  I often vacation in Guangxi Province and feel that somehow, somehow, it is the real China ... or at least the China that I somehow wanted to imagine in my dreams.  The countryside is really interesting and the locals are quite friendly.

Except for the mosquitoes, Nanning is just great.

my time there was short, it  rained every day. it was muddy. but the people were genuinely nice and gave me my space. i feel so awful though, i carried my "everyone is trying to cheat me" attitude i i feel really shatty for it. luckily i am quick to apologize. the city itself is dirty, at least where i stayed, but iwould look for a job in nanning and take less money just to experience the joy of being around good  people. my next visit, i will bring the right attitude "this is not like the rest of china"

Actually Nanning is one of the "hot spots" for ESL teachers in China these days who don't want Beijing nor Shanghai nor Guangzhou -- it's like Xiamen in Fujian -- it has an oversupply of foreign teachers compared to the number of open positions and as a result, wages are lower than in other parts of the country (same as in Xiamen).  The entire province is in demand these days and just look at Guilin and Yangshou the same.

But I never saw mud all over the place as the writer above writes.  May we can ask  Happy about that?

Some parts of the city, due to the high concentration of construction activity, is quite muddy or sandy, and when it rains, it all looks like "mud".  More towards city center or downtown, were is less construction activity, is cleaner.  At that is even with trucks up and down allo day and night brushing, washing and water blasting the dirt. 
I guess it is one of the downfall of progress.

I felt the same way when I visited Guiyang.  Very good people there.  The best so far in China.

They will be friendly to you in Nanning and pretend to be your frineds only to wait for the right opportunity to steal as much from you as possible. By the way have you ever seen a person fron Nanning ever pay for their own beer.

I'm not sure about Nanning but as far as the nicest people I would have to say probably Hong Kong. People in Hong Kong are extremely nice and laid back. No pushing in line, no staring all around polite people.

I have been to alot of places in China and I would have to say all are about the same. I really enjoyed Dalian where the locals would actually ask me to sit and chat with me over some fresh tea

Great city to live, I have been living here almost one year now but have visited several times over the previous five years. Just got back from an eight day stay in Beijing and it really felt like coming home. Nice people, generally good weather, good expat community.

Be careful in Nanning. People will pretend to be your friends then rob you blind

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
