Why Foreigners Are Leaving China

For many foreigners working in China can be a rough gig, it was for me.

Foreigners will not leave China. The only thing foreigners are leaving are their own countries.

I'm here for at least one year. If a another worthy, better English teaching gig shows up after my current contract, I may do it and stay one more year. But so far I've seen enough problems here that I know it can't be more than a stepping stone for me. I'm already ready to go elsewhere in Asia and even other parts of the world, and I've only been here just under 4 months. I don't regret coming here at all, though. It has been good. But I must see it for what it is. I built it up a little too much in my head before coming.

Yeah, China was awesome for me as well. But living in Guangzhou? Yeah, that's a stupid thing for anyone to try!

I might return at some point but I'd sure like to find a place that wasn't so freaking humid every single day. Sheesh, even my head seemed to be going mouldy. By comparison the climate in Bangkok is just awesome.

Well said, mguy. It always amazes me that certain guys who have an obvious hardon for country X (more like country X's underaged GIRLS) go to country X, and upon realizing that said country's girls aren't complete sluts.... these guys start getting all butthurt, eating sour grapes and 'calling out' said country as if it somehow owes them free young pu ssy :lol:
