Why study in Shantou?
Shantou is a harbor city in Guangdong Province, China. It is a Special Economic Zone which means the government have completed many infrastructure initiatives in recent years to improve the city. The area is home to the Chaoshan dialect and culture, including Chaoshan cuisine known for its speciality seafood and vegetarian dishes.
The city has a long coast line with natural beaches, islands and the Sangpu hills surrounding it — perfect for students who enjoy walking or hiking. The position of the city means it benefits from a milder winter compared with many other areas of China. Jieyang Chaoshan Airport is the nearest civilian airport, offering flights across China and some international options.
