    Volunteer China Yantai Opportunities (City description)

    Volunteer China Located in northeastern China, the city of Yantai sits on the coast of the Shandong Peninsula. Once recognized as the most “Charming City of China, Yantai is a small but busy shipping port city that to this day still retains some of its colonial charms. Unlike the large metropolis of Beijing and Shanghai, Yantai has its own unique character and history. In 1861, Yantai became one of the first opening ports in modern China. There is evidence that the city of Yantai existed as long as 10,000 years ago and was used as a means of defense against pirates. Today you can still see the well-preserved navy base which dates back to the Ming Dynasty.

    Volunteer China Yantai

    Yantai is known for its year-round pleasant weather and an abundance of fruit industries. The long coastline around Yantai offers a plentitude of seafood – scallops, crabs, and prawns are all easily available. The striking scenery in and around the city has earned the area acclaim by the United Nations, which lists it as one of the most inhabitable places in the world. Rolling hills rise above the areas many rivers and are framed by beaches and neighboring islands.

    With China’s rapid economic development, facilities in Yantai are improving, more emphasis on education and transportation is becoming more and more convenient. The need for native English speakers is high, as the country opens its doors to the rest of the World.
