Hello. I am moving to Zhongshan with my wife and 2 kids. We are planning for the children to attend Zhuhai International School. Does anyone out there have children at that school? Does anyone know of housing in Zhongshan along the bus route for ZIS?
take taxi is ok.
I'm an Australian and have been living in Zhongshan for nearly 3 years. My two teenaged sons attend Zhuhai International School. We've been very happy with the level of education and culture of the school.
We live in Kaiyin New Town (great area) and the school bus picks up and drops off the boys each day. Collection time is 7:40am and drop off is 4:35pm. The bus travels through kaiyin on it's way to the city of Zhongshan.
Hope this helps.
This is very interesting. We just moved to kaiyin and have been looking for a real international school. I've seen the school on website searches, but I figured we were too far away.
Hi Joel. ZIS is the only "real" international school in Zhongshan. I can vouch for it. Also positioned on a lovely Island. Safe and clean.
First, thanks a lot for the information.
I willl be moving with my family (my wife and daughter/3 years old) to Zhongshan as well. My company said that we will be staying in Kaiyin Apartment but is this a name for the site, region or apartment only, I could not undertstand.
I also check the schools and found 3 schools: Kingston Kindergarten Education Center, Hong Kong International School and Zhuhai Int Sc. But, I am not sure which could be best.
I see your references for Zhuhai, do you have any idea especially for Kingston Kindergarten Education Center?
Zhuhai seems little far away from Zhongshan regarding google map :) but for sure, I have no idea.
Thank you Anthea,
I will be looking at Kaiyin New Town, but that area appears to be outside of the city. My wife will be home. Is there shopping and restaurant near by? How do you get around?
Also, my factory is in the Dongshengzhen area. How is the traffic getting up to that area from Kaiyin?
There are local shops and cafes. It's 20 minutes in a taxi to the city. Also a strong expat community in Kaiyin New Town. I'm not familiar with Dongshengzhen area.
It will be the same for me. My wife and kids normally join me in August. Kaiyin is a very nice place and very easy by taxi or bus to go to dowtown
My factory is located in Fushazhen (not far from your factory) it takes 30mn with a private driver.
I've been living in Yajule Xi Yue in the east district (东区雅居乐喜悦) for almost 3 years now,
It is very convenient and only 10 minutes from downtown (Lihe Plaza, Italy square ...) . but only few foreigners live in the area, which helped me experience the city better and interact more with Chinese people and improve my Chinese.
Dong Sheng Zhen is 30 minutes away from 东区 by bus, (You can get there in less that 20 minutes if you got a scooter, I got mine with 4300元)
Transportation to ZIS is very easy from there.
Thanks Evan. This is very helpful.
