My first few days in Zhuhai, China!

I've only been in the amazing city of Zhuhai for 4 days, and already I'm absolutely loving it! Luckily for me, I'm going to be here for another 4 months!

When I first flew in from the UK the first thing I noticed was the heat - despite the fact it's still considered the Chinese winter season, anything is warm compared to Wales in the UK!

It's not just the weather that's different, it's also a completely different lifestyle in China than anywhere else I've ever been - everyone seems to be much more traditional and culture plays a huge part in most peoples lives here - which means its a great opportunity to learn about the culture while living here, and in the short 4 days I've been here, I've already learnt so much.

One of the things I've learnt, is how amazing the food is here - each meal is so unique either the way it's prepared or the ingredients that are used, you can find some fantastic dishes, as long as you keep an open mind!

I came to China as an intern for the ODM group - today being my first day. It has been brilliant so far, as not only was everyone incredibly welcoming, they've also been great in helping me to learn more about Chinese manufacturing, which I hope I can continue to expand my knowledge of. I chose to intern in China for a number of different reasons, such as:

  • Being really interested by the Chinese culture.
  • The fact that trade is continually developing here, which has made it the biggest economy in the world, which means there are endless opportunities that comes with this.
  • Wanting to learn a new language.
  • It's an amazing experience, that will look fantastic on my CV!

and of course.. the food!
