I never been to China nor any other countries expect my own of course (hehehehe). I initially went with a business visa to meet with the school and site seeing. I think they also wanted to see me personally since Chinese are quite superstitious according to the other Filipino teachers. They are looking for a certain aura, I honestly don't know what that means but I'm lucky to be chosen. I stayed three weeks and met with my future students, fixed my FEC(foreign expert certificate) toured the place and ate a lot. Boy! Chinese sure do order food a lot, which at first I couldn't enjoyed since I sucked at using chopsticks. According to my friend when a Chinese invites you to dinner you should eat a lot (or as much as you can) because if you don't, they will think you don't like their food. I only stayed there for 3 weeks but I gained a lot of weight.
The school I teach in is huge Huai'an and they sure wasted a lot of space, the schools are huge and the buildings are far apart from each other. The canteen was one big building with three floors. There were a lot of buildings. It's like a whole town in my opinion though I'm exaggerating a bit and they are still expanding.
The three weeks i stayed in China made me want to stay longer. The people were great, the scenery is luscious and green and yes everything is cheap. My first time in China was a experience worth remembering.
