Shandong | Aston Recruiting


Binzhou is in Shandong Province, located on the famous Yellow River. It is a small city by Chinese standards with “only” 600,000 people in the city and 3 million in the county. The city is split into a new and an old city so while it has all the features of a bigger city it has the feel of a smaller city. Perhaps due to its small city status the locals are extremely friendly and helpful; more than happy to chat with a new foreign friend.

Binzhou is a perfect example of a real Chinese city. There isnt the international atmosphere of China's big cities and it is much more outgoing and welcoming to newcomers. The new and exciting differences you will find in the new culture and city are interesting and rewarding. From laughing over boiling hot orange juice to local artists you just met giving you impromptu demonstations of their art, daily life is tonnes of fun.

Dongying Aston

Dongying is one of the richest cities in the country with a GDP per person which is 50% higher than Beijing. In comparison to the larger cities, foreigners are still relatively rare and as a result the ever welcoming locals are particularly friendly. As a result of the relative wealth, there quite a lot going on in the city; there is an excellent range of restaurants, laser tag, swimming pools, artificial beaches, cinemas (occasionally with English movies) along with pool halls, ping pong clubs and quality gyms. On top of this, probably due to its relatively small size, there is still a heart warming sense of community.

Gaomi Aston

Gaomi CityGaomi is found in eastern Shandong province, under the administration of Weifang city. The total area of 1605 square kilometers. The city's total population around 860000.

Jinan Aston

Changchun Jinan is the capital of Shandong Province and has been a major urban center for thousands of years. As early as the Tang Dynasty the city was already the social and cultural focal point of Shandong and this has continued up to the present day. Today the city is a modern metropolis and one of the most intriguing cities of Eastern China due to its size and relative lack of Western influence.

The city sits at the base of the Tai Shan Mountains over one of the most concentrated natural spring areas of Asia. The Yellow River passes just to the north of the city. The surrounding region is one of the oldest settled and most traditional areas in the whole of China. Fertile farmlands of the Yellow River delta and the river and spring systems generated in the nearby mountains allowed for settled agriculture, and then advanced civilization, to develop here at a very early date in human history. The region has been a main center of Chinese civilization for more than three thousand years.

Jining Aston
Jining is a quaint city. It has access to over 14 different smaller cities which are a part of its province and has a great local cuisine showing the many different styles that Shandong province has to offer.


The city has many locations for shopping and a wide selection of items to choose from. There are many stores where you can get access to day-to-day household goods. RT Mart (Da Run Fa in Chinese) has many western and Chinese foods that will allow you to enjoy a good meal when you need to feel at home. It’s the Asian “Wal-Mart” in the area – it distributes large quantities of most items you would ever need.

Linyi Aston

Linyi, situated in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong,now plays host to one of Aston's newest schools. When walking around the city our foreigners are often greeted with smiles and “Hello!”s from Weinan residents young and old. Getting around the city is no problem either. Wide roads and non-crowded streets mean walking or cycling around the city is stress-free and relaxing.

The people are friendly and inviting. Strangers look-on with intrigue at never-before-seen foreign faces, while English students all over the city want to take the opportunity to practice their English. It's easy to make friends, and this leads to great opportunities to develop (or start learning!) Chinese language.

Tai'an Aston

Scenes of Tai'anLike so much of Shandong, Tai’an is a city with a long history and a rich, cultural heritage. Its primary claim to fame is the magnificent Tai mountain, which was visited by the Qing emperor Qian Long in ancient times and provides a good six hour climb that will have even sporty types sweating. To those for whom this is an unappealing prospect, there is also an electric carriage that can take one to the top and at the peak await some of the most beautiful views imaginable. It is traditional to climb the mountain the previous night, stopping at a half-way house on the mountain, waking up at about 3am to finally make the peak just in time to see the sun rising.


Tengzhou is located in the south of the Shangdong Province and is proud of the hometown of Mo-tse. This revered gentleman was a highly regarded ancient thinker, educator, scientist, military strategist and social activist. Tengzhou is economically developed with a population of about 1.8 million.

There are numerous scenic spots, including but not limited to, the Red Lotus Wetland Park and Lianqing Mountain. It is also close to other tourist attractions, which include the ancient city of Taierzhuang and the largest pomegranate orchard in the world. Tengzhou is a comfortable and inviting place to live and travel that is very well connected to the rest of the province by highway and fast-train network.

Weifang Aston

Weifang is located in the central-east of the province and is proudly the Kite Capital of the world, but there is more to Weifang than just this. A developed, small-sized city of about 1 million people, it is growing rapidly while still retaining a recognizable local atmosphere. It’s a calm and inviting place to live, an easy place to navigate and friendly to walkers and bike-riders alike. Connected to the rest of the province by highway and the fast-train network, it’s simple enough to travel to Qingdao (70 minutes) or Jinan (90 minutes), or to the nearby country towns or mountains, such as Yun Men Shan, or Yi Shan, the ‘East Mt Tai.’
