Question by Jennifer G: Where is the best place to live if working in Shenzhen China?
We are an American family with two children. My husband is looking into a job in Shenzhen. Where is a good place to go to school and live for Americans. Any info is appreciated. We are not certain we even know all the questions we need to be asking. We are from a town of about 16,000 people here in the states. What will life be like there?

Shekou is good. Large western community. Even a Wal-Mart. Plus nearby the American School.
Make sure the job pays the school, it’s US$ 12,000 per kid and year.
I strongly, strongly suggest you come for a visit first and then decide if you want to stay. I also suggest you search for some other USAians that work there and can give you advise.
Life in China is very different from the USA and not everybody likes it.
