@Rasssul
Yes, I would say 95% of the language teaching jobs here are for English language.

@abebatabat
If you are asking whether some schools specifically want Asian teachers for teaching English, the answer is probably no. A "white face" goes a long way. Even native English speakers from non-white countries have fewer opportunities than western-looking people with English as a second or third language. Crazy but TIC.

There used to be one but it was discontinued when new gvt regs made the group originator responsible for any and all comments made on it. I think GoK is your best bet for job hunting now.

Such a shame. My son and I have often taken the train to ShiZui and back as a fun morning's outing. 2RMB return was a bargain and it was amusing to see all the traffic stopped as we trundled by. We'll miss this unique and anachronistic gem.

A friend of ours has a mushroom farm and she recently gave us a bag about the size of a marrow full of soil and mushroom spores. Within a day a golf-ball sized mushroom had sprouted out of one end. Within two days there were three golf-ball sized sprouts. Within three days one had grown to fist-sized. It really was a shock how fast these things can grow. It looks superficially similar to the photo in the article and we ate them without incident.

This is a great show which, although pricey (about 100RMB depending on seat, kids under 1metre for free) is pretty good value for a 1.5 hour show. Few animals (horses, dogs and a couple of camels only) and lots of impressive human feats, with an international flavour. I was pleasantly surprised and my son loved it.

Clean pool with nice showers, but small (25-30m?) and deep (1.2-1.5m) so not great for tiny kids. Biggest disappointment is the hefty price - 50RMB for adults and 30RMB for kids (before any discounts). Easy to find, as name is in English outside (though it looks like a shop front).

Not very clean, but friendly staff, two pools (adult and child) and only 25RMB. Worth a visit.

For those who remember the zoo as it was 4-5 years ago, there are definitely some improvements. The lion, tiger and elephant enclosures are much better than the old concrete cages. The various deer have more space too. The "monkey mountain" and wildfowl pond are actually quite nice. Sure, if you hate the idea of zoos then obviously avoid this one. But otherwise ...well, I've seen a lot worse in China.

Hole-in-the-wall XiaoLongBaoZi (dumplings) joints are all very well for grabbing a snack, but if you want to see and taste how good they can really be, I highly recommend this restaurant. Sure, you pay a bit more but the service is attentive, you see the dumplings being made and they taste fantastic. I ordered a tray of 8. then another 8 and then yet another! Well worth the visit.
