Hangzhou - This location is a bigger city. For Hangzhou we require a teacher with at least 2 years teaching experience (we would need a written teaching experience letter). Hangzhou is fairly close to Shanghai and is a tourist city. The cost of living is definitely higher (close to the cost of living in cities like Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou), so in comparison the salary does not go as far, but it is also a nice city that the teachers enjoy.
