The City in the Middle of it All

Xuzhou is a mix of new and old, between modern and traditional. There are major shopping malls side by side with street vendors, modern apartment buildings and traditional Chinese households. Outside your apartment building you will find small shops, a variety of restaurants, retired Chinese watching their grandchildren or playing majiang, and evening dancing in the squares.

From the vibrant street markets downtown to the gorgeous man-made lake in the south-west of the city, life as a foreigner in Xuzhou is always an interesting adventure, but at the same time always comfortable. While having access to international restaurants and supermarkets, you have the benefits of local prices which makes daily life in Xuzhou very attractive.
