Mainland China is the most populated country in the world, with around 1.3 billion people living there. It is a country that has developed rapidly over recent years. If you move to China you’ll notice stark contrasts between the cutting-edge skyscrapers and timeless traditional buildings. Depending, of course on which city you’re moving to, you’re likely to notice the vastness, population density and general chaos of China, but you’ll also see the pace of development and the overall energy of the place. The official language of China is Mandarin, although a number of regional dialects are also spoken. In the main cities, you will probably be able to get by with only speaking English, however, it is recommended you learn at least a limited amount of Mandarin to make the time you spend in China as easy and enjoyable as possible.
