Q: Foshan or Guangzhou

Hi All,

 

I am considering a job in one of these places. Anyone want to weigh in with pro's and cons about either place?

 

Foshan vs Guangzhou! Ding Ding! Let's go!

I would consider the positions offered more than the cities themselves. 

I have always preferred Foshan but that was when I was working in Guangzhou and wanted to get away from the city.

If it's about lifestyle, then Guangzhou. I've lived there for more than two years. If that's not what you want, then Foshan, more laid back. Money's about the same.

I have spent years in both. Gaungzhou is much more convenient. Bars. Western food shopping. Youll go often if you choose foshan. Foshan rent is far cheaper. So youll have a really comfortable almost western standard home. You cant call it inconvenient by any means but not on guangzhous level. Foshan is much more relaxed. Quiet. Just nice. It depends on whats important too you.

One disadvantage. Though it depends where you are. Transportation in foshan isnt the greatest. Most foreigners will buy a car.

I have a cqr so preferred foshan waaay more. My friends that dont plan to buy a car would prefer GZ.
