Why Come to Songyuan?

If you're looking for something different or a chance to enjoy China and save money, try Songyuan. A modern and growing city on the plains of northeast China, Songyuan is an exiting and attractive place to teach.

The city is located on the Songhua River in Jilin Province. Although it's only two hours by train from the major cities of Harbin and Changchun, Songyuan sits in rural surroundings. With four distinct seasons, it offers enjoyable seasonal changes that enhance the natural beauty of the area.

Living in Songyuan is economical, partly because the city has not yet had an influx of Western teachers and business people. You can live comfortably for 2,000 RMB (U.S. $300) a month, although many locals spend much less. There's a wide range of food options: a meal of dumplings costs about 8 RMB ($1.25) and a high-end Brazilian BBQ buffet is around 70 RMB ($10). Most popular, though, are mid-range restaurants that feature cuisine from all over China, where dishes cost 10 to 25 RMB ($1.50–$3.75). You can also get Chinese-style salads for 8 RMB ($1.25), beef noodles for 5 RMB ($0.75), and a large beer for 4 RMB ($0.60).

The locals are both friendly and courteous. Visitors are welcomed and can enjoy modern Chinese life while still experiencing the rural and uncommercialized aspects of the community. Songyuan is still a very Chinese city with no English spoken or advertised – it offers our teachers a unique taste of beautiful northern China.

There is good shopping, with several large complexes supplying everything you might need. Street markets in the late afternoon are plentiful, offering a wide range of fresh food and various odds and ends.

One of the most famous resorts near Songyuan is Chagan Lake. It is a national tourism site and is very well preserved. It is a year-round tourist resort. The winter fishing in December and January is a special attraction. In December 2006, 104,500 kilograms were caught in a single net, amounting to the current world record, verified by Guinness World Records.
